/etc/odbc.ini, $HOME/.odbc.ini - unixODBC data source configuration files
/etc/odbc.ini is a system-wide configuration file for ODBC Data Source Names (DSNs).
$HOME/.odbc.ini is a user-specific configuration file for ODBC Data Source Names (DSNs).
Paths to both configuration files can be overridden by unixODBC build options. Call odbcinst -j to determine the default configuration file paths on your system.
Many ODBC drivers come with .ini file templates. Using odbcinst to install these templates is recommended.
odbc.ini follows the pesudo-standard ini file syntax convention of one or more [section headings], each followed by zero or more key = value attributes.
This mandatory section lists each data source name (DSN) as a key. The associated values serve as comments. Each entry must be matched by an ini file [section] describing the data source.
Each data source is identified by a [section header], which is the DSN name used by applications. Each DSN definition section may contain values for the keys:
An example odbc.ini configuration file is shown in the "Administrator Manual" shipped with unixODBC.
