    Cloudera Connection Problem - ODBC Administrator - Potential Teradata conflict?

    Ben Porter

      Hello,

       

      I'm trying to connect Tableau to our Hive Cluster.  I've read the following documentation from Tableau

       

      http://kb.tableausoftware.com/articles/knowledgebase/cloudera-hadoop-hive-connection

      http://kb.tableausoftware.com/articles/knowledgebase/administering-hadoop-hive

       

      and I've read the following Cloudera documentation

      https://ccp.cloudera.com/download/attachments/18776385/Cloudera_Connector_for_Tableau.pdf?version=1&modificationDate=1328647205000

       

      We are getting stuck in the Cloudera documentation of connecting to the system DSN, we keep getting a system error 127.

       

      I suspect that the problem may be due to a conflict with Teradata.  The only ODBC Administrator happens to reside within the Teradata program file structure.

       

      Anyone have any experience ideas?

       

      Thanks
