    Connecting Tableau Desktop (Windows Server) to SAS and DB2 on a UNIX Server

      Morning!

      I am trying to connect Tableau Desktop (Windows Server) to SAS and DB2 on a UNIX Server and have not been successful. Honestly, it's all quite confusing. My understanding is that because the SAS/DB2 is on a UNIX server I can not use an ODBC connection. I know there is a "connector" that can be downloaded from the Tableau site however my managed machine will not let me complete the install process. Has anyone been successful with this type of connection? If so, how? Also, what is the specific name of the connector needed (I can't see it, just a link to select to download). Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!!
