I've had the driver at this location recommended to me on several occasions, but we won't buy anything extra so I've never bothered to check it out.


We've taken to copying all necessary data down to MS SQL Server instance instead. We ditched our own 520 and are now on Jack Henry's 770 box. It's fast on their end, but pulling MBs of data back here is slow, so we just want to pull it once. Not that our current SQL Server is very fast either, but it beats pulling it over the VPN.

Subject: ODBC Driver for iSeries on Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit

Hi All,

Does anyone know if there is an alternative ODBC driver supplied by IBM that is not in the Client Access Setup that works with Windows Server 2008R2 64bit? We've found that when we install the CA app (with the ODBC driver) on WS2K8 R2 64bit that it clobbers the IIS application pool and makes IIS unusable.

We've tried two times and each time we basically had to reformat the server and start over....I'm not too keen on trying a third time with the same driver.

Alternatively, I would use one made by Microsoft if there is one that works with iSeries.
