    Hi, when I try to connect Tableau Desktop to vertica's db VMart through the container i have this problem:

    But the drivers are already installed. Infact without the drivers I would not have been able to see this: :

    What version of Mac OS are you running? Is it Intel or ARM (M1/M2/etc.) platform?

    Are you starting your container with -p 5444:5433? Vertica port for client connections by default is 5433

    There's a known issue on Mac M1 (ARM) platform with libintl.8.dylib binary version. This will be fixed in the upcoming 12.0.2 release. When 12.0.2 is available, upgrade the Vertica ODBC driver and the issue should be resolved.

    Hey everyone

    Just stumbled upon this topic and I must say, it's intriguing to see the marriage of Vertica and Tableau being discussed. Personally, I've had some firsthand experience with these two powerhouses, and I can't help but share my two cents.

    To Myanmar, creating a Docker container that bridges Vertica and Tableau can seem a bit like a complex puzzle at first, but fear not! The link given to you from the admin is a great guide to get you on the right track. I remember my initial journey with this connection; I was excited about the possibilities, but ran into a few difficulties, especially on my Mac M1. (like you). Unfortunately, I had an important project at that moment, and I found it a bit difficult...But we found a workaround with our team, and the project was delivered on time. The libintl.8.dylib binary version issue was a real head-scratcher!

    It is my understanding that for those who have experienced a similar problem, there is good news in the form of release 12.0.2. Once it is released, updating the Vertica ODBC driver will be the key to getting things back to normal. Is this available yet? Can I upgrade?

  • Yes, it is available, and you can upgrade. You can download from below link.
