    ParAccel 64 bit driver on Server

    Benjamin Fox

      We are updating our data warehouse to use ParAccel. It is a 64 bit version of ParAccel, as well as a 64 bit version of Tableau.  I tried installing the 64 bit driver for Tableau on my server box and my reports had the same error that it was missing a driver. After installing the 32 bit version of the Paraccel driver the reports on my Tableau Server would load.

       

      It appears to me that my Tableau server is configured to use the 32 bit driver, and not the 64 bit. Does anyone know if this is the case and if Tableau is planning on updating their server to use 64 bit drivers for ParAccel? It isn't a big deal for us, but it was a small hiccup with the update. Tableau 8.1 was the first time it went 64 bit, so I assume it's just a driver not high on their priority list.

       

      Thanks for any information you may have.
