sql server install alongside 5.
« on: May 21, 2019, 10:31:35 AM »
We are attempting to deloy sql server 6 alongside odbc server 5.20 on linux.  The new install wants to re-deploy libpxpio.so.  Will the new library work with the old server? If not, is there a way to have the 2 versions co-exists while we test?

The old version needs to use the library it came with and the new version needs to use the library it came with. So do not just override the existing library with the new one as the old server would likely stop working.

While testing I would recommend keeping the libraries for the new ODBC server in the install directory of the ODBC server and not in the /lib directory. Then you can set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable before running the new ODBC server to search in the new ODBC server install directory. After it launches you can then set the back to normal.
