I have an SCO machine with an Informix 7 database. I wanna access the database using an ODBC but I don't know what I have to do. I have an ODBC driver for informix (Informix setnet32) but I can't find the information it requires to do the connection (or I'm not sure if the information I have is correct, I want to know how to check it). I need server name, host name, database name, the service that is configured to be used, and the protocol. Besides, I read that I had to do some configuration changes, what are these changes?
Please help me, I'd really appreciate your help. Thanks.
If you haven an access, go to the installation directory of the informix server and set environment variable INFORMIXDIR.
if your installation directory is: /usr/informix
then set INFORMIXDIR to '/usr/informix'
Then go to the bin directory (subdirectory of the INFORMIXDIR) and run 'onstat -g dis'.
You should get information like servername , and location of files with other necessary information.
