    Trouble trying to install ODBC driver 12.2 on MAC

    Camilo E. Zamorano

      I've been having a really hard time trying to install the ODBC driver on mac, i followed several instructions, for example these two:

      - https://community.oracle.com/thread/4120787

      - https://blogs.oracle.com/opal/installing-the-oracle-odbc-driver-on-macos

       

      And i just can't make it work. I have been searching tutorials on a bunch of sites: stackoverflow, youtube, etc but i just can't make it work.

       

      About the blog link: when trying to run the following statement

       

      sudo odbc_update_ini.sh /usr/local

      I got the following error:

       

      sudo: odbc_update_ini.sh: command not found

       

      So i just used

       

      sudo sh odbc_update.ini.sh /usr/local

       

      And got:

       

      *** ODBCINI environment variable not set,defaulting it to HOME directory! *** ODBCINI environment variable not set,defaulting it to HOME directory!

       

       

      No idea what that means honestly.

       

      Lastly i tried connecting to the database through isql on the terminal as follows:

       

      isql OracleODBC-12c dsn user password  | isql OracleODBC-12c  user password

      and it doesn't work .

       

      Please help me, i'm kind of freaking out.

       

      Thanks in advance!
