The actual error reported to us was:
0509-150 Dependent module /usr/local/easysoft/unixODBC/lib/libodbc.a(odbc.so) could not be loaded.
and this is an AIX-specific issue.
At various stages in unixODBC's history, libtool (used to create unixODBC shared objects) has created:
Applications linked against the library are dependent on the name of the archive (libodbc.a) and the name of the object inside it. Running dump -H on unixODBC's isql included with your Easysoft ODBC driver might display:
INDEX PATH BASE MEMBER 3 libodbc.a libodbc.so.1
Applications such as Informatica and UniVerse/UniData have a dependency on libodbc.a(odbc.so). To ensure, isql (and any other applications built directly with your current unixODBC) continue to work but also allow Informatica/UniVerse/UniData etc. to work you need to extract the current object from libodbc.a, rename it and add it back to the archive.
