ODBC Driver for SQL Server

Installing on Linux (DEB) - ODBC Driver for SQL Server

Prerequisites

ODBC Driver for SQL Server works under control of an ODBC driver manager. ODBC driver manager is not distributed along with our driver and must be installed separately.

ODBC Driver for SQL Server is compatible with UnixODBC driver manager. You can install the unixODBC driver manager using the command below:

sudo apt-get install odbcinst1debian2 libodbc1 odbcinst unixodbc

In case when using other ODBC driver managers, ODBC Driver for SQL Server will be installed, but it will require manual modification of configuration files of these managers.
