Set Up an ODBC Driver for a Connection to a Repository

Setting up an ODBC driver is only necessary for certain database management systems, which require specific set-up in order to operate as a repository.

Other database management systems connect through OLE DB and do not require a driver. However, you can connect to an Oracle repository using either OLE DB or an ODBC driver; if you intend to connect through the ODBC driver, you must first set it up.


For more information and the steps involved for specific systems, follow the links below:


Enterprise Architect requires 32-bit ODBC drivers to connect to a repository through ODBC; to set up the ODBC configuration on 64-bit clients, run the 32-bit ODBC Data Source Administrator from C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe
