Creating an ODBC Data Source Name (DSN)

A Data Source Name (DSN) is the logical name that is used by Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) to refer to the driver and other information that is required to access data from a data source. Whether you are developing your own ODBC client code or you are using a third-party tool that needs to access Vertica using ODBC, you need to configure and test a DSN. The method you use depends upon the client operating system you are using.

Refer to the following sections for information specific to your client operating system.
