We have some MS Sql databases and need to run some queries from Oracle. Our Oracle database is at version running on Solaris. According to Oracle we need to set up a Database Gateway for ODBC either on a Windows platform, Linux or Solaris.

Our MS Sql server is 64 bit, and apparently DG4ODBC is only certified for 32 bit on Windows and Linux. If on Solaris a third party like the ODBC driver from Data Direct Technologies is needed, and the 9i database needs to be patched. After installing DG4ODBC a listener and tnsnames.ora need to be configured. Then a database link needs to be created on Oracle.

The 9i database has something called hsodbc but Oracle says that is not certified anymore.

Has someone in the list done something like this?

Thank you
