What Configuration Files Are Used By Single-Tier Drivers?

OpenLink's Single-Tier drivers rely on the following configuration files: openlink.sh and openlink.csh - These files appear in the root of Unix-based, Single-Tier installations. They contain ODBC-related environment variables. openlink.ini - This file appears in the /bin sub-directory of Unix-based, Single-Tier installations. It contains database-specific environment variables. odbc.ini - This file appears in the /bin sub-directory of Unix-based, Single-Tier installations. It contains Data Source Name connection attributes. Occasionally, it may contain ODBC tracing parameters. odbcinst.ini - This file appears in the /bin sub-directory of Unix-based, Single-Tier installations. It contains path and setup information for the Single-Tier driver. Windows drivers do not contain these files. Environment variables appear on the Environment or Advanced tab of the System utility. The odbc.ini and odbcinst.ini files are replaced by the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI sections in the registry.
