Hello Rob,

How do I execute a remote procedure which is on a SQL Server using this?

In addition to Mark's remark…

Each RDBMS has its own proprietary protocol for this kind of networking. (That is why you need a separate ODBC driver for each and every database: The wire protocol is different.)

What you need is a translator. I have read that "newer versions" of the MS Host Integration Server are said to provide a translator from DRDA (IBM i wire protocol) to what MS SQL Server expects. From what I've gleaned in the MS online documentation, you can *only* access remote data via stored procedures. I'm not even sure if you can add data to an MS SQL table with this.

Months ago, I invested a day to get MS HIS 2019 running on an MS Windows Server 2019 and hooked up to a 7.2 instance. And failed to even get the basic APPN adjacency established (over EE). The available documentation is horribly blurry and after pondering over vacuous error messages in the MS event logs, I finally gave up. Maybe there is a bug I've been hitting in this constellation.

(I'm running an MS HIS 2k on my IPCS on w2k server in my model 150 which has been easy to set up and mostly works as expected. Thus I'm wondering even more why I can't get that newer version to behave. — Anyway, that old version does *not* provide the DRDA translator part.)

I remember dimly to already have written about this here…

:wq! PoC
