How can I tell what version I have?

Users may employ a variety of methods to obtain their product version information. Windows and Mac Single-Tier users should open their ODBC Administrator. The Single-Tier driver version appears on the Drivers tab of this Administrator. Users simple scroll through the Driver list box, locate their driver, and record the version string, which appears to the right of the driver name.

ODBC Data Source Administrator Driver's Tab

Unix Single-Tier users should run the odbctest sample application. odbctest will print the driver version information, before it returns a SQL> prompt. Unix Multi-Tier users should also run odbctest to return client driver information.

Multi-Tier Broker and agent executables recognize a -? and a -v flag. Instruct all users to take the following action:

  1. Open a DOS Command Prompt, Unix console terminal, or similar command line utility.
  2. cd into the /bin sub-directory of the OpenLink server components installation.
  3. Type the broker or agent name and append -? or -v to the end of the name. For example:
                    oplrqb -?
            ingii_mv -?
            sql_mv -v
  4. Record the version information that is returned by the broker or agent.
