UnixODBC update


(Dux) #1

Hello, everyone. I have a FreePBX distro. How can I upgrade unixODBC to version 2.3.7 with yum? The current version is 2.3.1 Yum does not show any upgrade in the repository.

Obvious question: Why?

Are you installing something on the server that requires that version or are you looking at a security scan and need to get compliant?

I have solved this. I found on the Internet, how to update the repository.
curl -s https://packages.microsoft.com/config/rhel/7/prod.repo | sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/msprod.repo
Then I was able to update unixODBC to the latest version 2.3.7

I am currently using FreeTDS to connect to Microsoft SQL Server and planning to switch to the Microsoft SQLSRV driver, which requires the lastest version of unixODBC for connection pooling support. The database is used in AGI to get and update external data.
