Error while Compiling ODBC Loader Package

I was trying to using ODBC Loader package as mentioned in github at https://github.com/vertica/Vertica-Extension-Packages/tree/master/odbc_loader_package and confronted through couple of issues. At first when I tried compiling the package, it threw error saying that "StringParsers.h" is not available. Then I removed every codes associated to this parser and compiled it. It did compiled successfully then after but while creating library, I ran into error saying SQL Fetch as undefined symbol. Detail error as "Error: [Vertica][VJDBC](3399) ROLLBACK: Failure in UDx RPC call InvokeSetExecContext(): Error calling setupContext() in User Defined Object [] at [/scratch_a/release/vbuild/vertica/UDxFence/vertica-udx-C++.cpp:132], error code: 0, message: Error happened in dlopen(): [/vertica/data/UDF/ODBCLoader.so: undefined symbol: SQLFetch] SQLState: HY000 ErrorCode: 3399" Any help here will be appreciated, as I'm trying to connect to Oracle directly using ODBC.

  • Hi! Try to compile normally (default location of missing files): /opt/vertica/sdk/examples/HelperLibraries/StringParsers.h /opt/vertica/sdk/examples/ParserFunctions/StringParsers.h
  • I could not locate the second one. However, I just copied the same and compiled and it did work. But the second error in my first question i.e. related to Library Creation is still there. Thanking in advance for any assistance here.
  • Does anyone have any solution on this? Any help here would be truly appreciated
  • Hi Asim, Hm... Which ODBC driver manager (and what version) are you using? Also, could you run "ldd /vertica/data/UDF/ODBCLoader.so", and post the output here? To see what libraries are being automatically loaded along with this compilation of ODBCLoader. That symbol should be provided by unixODBC on your system. The compile should fail if the library is missing altogether. (Unless you're compiling on a different computer from the one you're running on? ODBC is very picky about running with the same driver-manager version that you were compiled against. So make sure to compile on the same machine that Vertica is running on.) Incidentally: Oracle's ODBC driver has some limitations that we're forced to work around. (This won't cause the issue you're seeing but it may cause other issues.) However, our logic to detect when the current database is Oracle, is not very smart. If you've worked with Oracle via C++/ODBC before, well, this loader is open-source; patches would be most appreciated :-) Otherwise, for use with Oracle, you may see better results if you comment out lines 400 and 402 of ODBCLoader.cpp, so that we unconditionally set "quirks = Oracle;".

  • Thank you Adam. I've actually installed Oracle client oracle-instantclient11.2-basic-11.2.0.3.0-1.x86_64.rpm oracle-instantclient11.2-odbc-11.2.0.3.0-1.x86_64.rpm as my oracle DB is 11.2.0.3 Here's the output from driver load.... linux-vdso.so.1 => (0x00007fff893ff000) libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6 (0x00007f92e2c7c000) libm.so.6 => /lib64/libm.so.6 (0x00007f92e29f8000) libgcc_s.so.1 => /lib64/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x00007f92e27e1000) libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x00007f92e244f000) /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x0000003973200000) And, all these are from the same m/c where one of the Vertica Node is installed. Looking forward to hearing soon from you. Thanks,
  • Hi Asim, Hm... The list of drivers should also contain some flavor of libodbc. (Our makefile adds it.) You mentioned that you have the Oracle drivers installed. Do you also have the unixODBC driver manager installed? If so, what version? Thanks, Adam
  • Thank you Adam. It worked, compiled it using the makefile. BTW, this is the version of unixODBC driver "unixODBC-2.2.14-11.el6.x86_64" that I've installed.
  • Hi Adam,

    I am having the same error message with dlopen when I try to create the library after I use this command to compile the files and it works and creates .so file.

    If I try to use makefile to compile the code, it gives lot of errors. Here is the output
