Notes

Note

  • The default authentication assumes that you are either logging in as or sudo’ing to the dbadmin account on the host.
  • This module uses pyodbc, a Python ODBC database adapter. You must ensure that unixODBC and pyodbc is installed on the host and properly configured.
  • Configuring unixODBC for Vertica requires Driver = /opt/vertica/lib64/libverticaodbc.so to be added to the Vertica section of either /etc/odbcinst.ini or $HOME/.odbcinst.ini and both ErrorMessagesPath = /opt/vertica/lib64 and DriverManagerEncoding = UTF-16 to be added to the Driver section of either /etc/vertica.ini or $HOME/.vertica.ini.

Status
