Mapper OLE DB

Mapper OLE DB

Mapper OLE DB

We are trying to utilize OLE DB instead of DataAccess on our Libra and ES7000 system to access DMSII data from mapper. I would like to know if anybody out there has tried this and is using it successfully. Any experience in those areas would be beneficial to our cause. Thanks

RE: Mapper OLE DB

I can answer part of your question.

OLEDB is used successfully to access DMSII databases at many sites.

It had better work - EAE, nee LINC, uses this to access ClearPath MCP hosts, nee A Series.

To allow update through OLEDB there must be a capabilities file.


RE: Mapper OLE DB

To set this up, I'm going on memory for I haven't done it in a year and half,

Within Microsoft SQL Server setup a Linked Server that accesses the ODBC client to DMSII databases (via DataAccess (keep in mind that DataAccess is ODBC only)).
Then setup in the OLEDB tool that comes with Unisys BIS the connection to the Microsoft SQL Server name given to the linked server.  Within BIS (MAPPER) you then configure an OLEDB database to the name you gave using the OLEDB tool.

Easy enough.  It is the linked server within SQL Server security that confuses.  

Contact Mike Stroeing of Unisys and ask for the Unite Power Point Presentation of October 2005 by Derek Schramm and it demonstrates this step by step with pictures.
