Driver Installation on HP-UX


  1. None


  1. Place all files in the /opt/minisoft directory. (the libraries should be 755)
  2. If you do not have a ODBC driver manager, skip this step. Append the lines from "drvinst.ini" into the odbcinst.ini file for your system.

    cat /opt/minisoft/drvinst >> /usr/local/etc/odbcinst.ini
  3. This step is used to populate an odbc.ini file. 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.

  4. $ export ODBCSYSINI=/usr/local/etc

    $ config3kodbc.exe -i -u -f mscard.ini

    Installs mscard as a User DSN


    config3kodbc.exe -i -s -f mscard.ini

    Installs mscard as a System DSN

  5. Execute the application license.exe
