ODBC Driver for AIX Installation Instructions
For DSN management and testing, Minisoft recommends the installation of an ODBC Driver Manager. We have
found that unixODBC 2.2.7 or later <http://www.unixodbc.org>, is able to fill this role.
The location of the odbcinst.ini and odbc.ini files are based upon the Driver Manager you use. If you do
not have a Driver Manger installed, create the odbcinst.ini and odbc.ini files in the /etc directory.
- Place all files in the /opt/minisoft directory. (the directories should be mode 755)
- Use "config3kodbc.exe" to set the information from mscard.ini into you odbc.ini file. The
database and password information for your HP3000 are encoded into the odbc.ini file and cannot be
(easily) added with a text editor. This application (config3kodbc.exe) reads a ini file and
encodes the information into the odbc.ini file.
To install mscard as a User DSN:
config3kodbc.exe -i -u -f mscard.ini
Please report the value from this utility so that a License Number can be generated for your system. The
license information will be stored on the system used as the ODBC Server for this client.
Place license.exe in the directory "/opt/minisoft". When run, it should display the System ID
and System Name:
System ID = 
System Name = [AIX 1 005461A24C00]
