1201032 - Unable to preview Crystal Reports on BusinessObjetcs Enterprise with Teradata 12 ODBC driver connecting to 12 server on Solaris platform

Symptom

When viewing Crystal Reports with the Teradata ODBC driver version 12 on a Solaris platform, the pageserver cannot connect to the version 12 server successfully. You will be asked to fill in the username and password permanently.
 
This problem only occurs on Solaris platform with version 12 ODBC driver.

Cause

In Business Objects XI Release 2, we are using SQLDriverConnect to connect to Teradata Server, but Teradata version 12 ODBC driver failed with this on a Solaris platform.

You may find Adhoc(TD sample application) can connect successfully, that is because Adhoc is using SQLConnect.

Resolution

You can use Teradata ODBC V2R3.06 driver to connect to the version 12 server, or you can try using version version 12 JDBC drivers. Both work on Solaris.
