Post #2 of 2
I want to login to Sybase,Oracle,MS Sqlserver, UDB, DB2 databases from Unix AIX box. PERL 5 software is installed by UNIX admin on our unix box but DBI/DBD modules are not installed. Can anybody help me to find out while modules / software do I need to request unix admin to install on unix box and fromwhere he can download that.
You need the DBI module together with whatever DBD module is required for the database that you want to connect to (for Sybase you'll need DBD::Sybase, Oracle you'll need DBD::Oracle, etc). You'll also need the client libraries for your chosen databases installed locally on your system. For example, for Sybase you'll need CT-Lib (or FreeTDS) installed.
Also if you can provide me idea to login to MSSQLServer 2000 from unix box using PERL DBI/DBD , I will appreciate that.
I think you'll find that you can use DBD::Sybase to connect to MS SQL Server.
