Hi! Just a suggestion: I use ODBC to connect to a Windows SQL-Server 2008 instance. I had some Problems to get a proper DSN, so i modified DBI.pm around line 455 to get an override: # AnD: Using DSN directily from config if having something "special" my $db_dsn = $config->{'dsn'}; # Use config to create a DSN line for the DBI connection my $dsn = "dbi:$dbi_driver:database=$db_database;host=$db_server;port=$db_port"; # AnD: Override dsn directly in set in config if ($db_dsn) {$dsn=$db_dsn;} # Now let's get connected And in the RT_SiteConfig.pm: Set($ExternalSettings, { 'My_Globeman' => { 'type' => 'db', 'dsn' => 'DBI:ODBC:AnD2009', 'server' => 's03-sql', Ist a little "quick and dirty" ;) - maybe there should be some change tot he string-building oft he dsn, so that parameters which are not given by the config are not included (ie if no port iss et, then dont include 'port=' in the dsn...)

Hi Andreas I'd be happy to take a patch that built the dsn piecemeal based on what arguments were passed in. I'm a little hesitant to just clobber the dsn to work around the issue. I assume your dsn would also work as dbi:ODBC:database=AnD2009 ? -kevin

Hi Kevin! Thank you for the fast reply. I tried the DSN "dbi:ODBC:database=AnD2009", but its not working this way: DBI connect('database=AnD2009','ticketingDBuser',...) failed: [unixODBC][Driver Manager]Driver's SQLAllocHandle on SQL_HANDLE_HENV failed (SQL-IM004)(DBD: db_login/SQLConnect err=-1) at /opt/rt3/local/plugins/RT-Authen-ExternalAuth/lib/RT/Authen/ExternalAuth/DBI.pm line 465 So I did the following (I'm not very familiar with perl - I'm sure there is a more sophisticated way to do this ;) # Use config to create a DSN line for the DBI connection my $dsn="dbi:$dbi_driver:"; if ($db_database) { if ("\U$dbi_driver" eq 'ODBC') { $dsn=$dsn."$db_database";} else { $dsn=$dsn."database=$db_database;"}; } if ($db_server) {$dsn=$dsn."host=$db_server;"}; if ($db_port) {$dsn=$dsn."port=$db_port"}; #my $dsn = "dbi:$dbi_driver:database=$db_database;host=$db_server;port=$db_port"; # Now let's get connected $RT::Logger->debug("Attemting to connect to db with dsn:",$dsn); my $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn, $db_user, $db_pass,{RaiseError => 1, AutoCommit => 0 }) or die $DBI::errstr; Show quoted text

Ok, that makes me sad, but yes, looking at the DBD::ODBC documentation, it appears to work differently from other DBD modules. Perhaps we will just add a plain dsn option for those folks who have to work in 'slightly unusual' environments. I'll see if Mike has any objections before poking at it -kevin

Maybe it would be more consistent to include something as a "odbcdsn" Parameter as an option to the Config File. In fact it is not really the Database, it’s the ODBC Data Source Name, which we refer to. my $db_ODBCdsn = $config->{'ODBCdsn'}; # Use config to create a DSN line for the DBI connection my $dsn="dbi:$dbi_driver:"; if ($db_database) {$dsn=$dsn."database=$db_database;"}; if ($db_ODBCdsn) {$dsn=$dsn.$db_ODBCdsn;} if ($db_server) {$dsn=$dsn."host=$db_server;"}; if ($db_port) {$dsn=$dsn."port=$db_port"}; #my $dsn = "dbi:$dbi_driver:database=$db_database;host=$db_server;port=$db_port"; # Now let's get connected I think this would be slightly more straight forward?
