in thread [unixODBC][FreeTDS][SQL Server]Unable to connect to data source (SQL-08001)

Hi please look at the last line i am not able to find out the error, its showing the servername as empty string and no further process but i have defined the servername in odbc.ini file which in turn will refer the freetds.conf file for ip address

$ sudo TDSVER=7.2 osql -S SERVER -U username -P password checking shared odbc libraries linked to isql for default directories. +.. trying /usr ... no trying /loc ... no trying /tmp/sql.log ... no trying /home ... no trying /.odbc.ini ... no trying /usr/local/etc ...

    The only difference i can see between your configuration and the example from the ubuntu site is that you miss the value for the Database key in the server section of your odbci.ini. I mentioned this already. As far as i understood the manual you must provide a value for that key (...yes, i'm skating on thin ice).

    Please keep in mind that this is not a perl issue. Read the manual again - with patience. This is something that i can't do for you.

    See also:

    There are a few ways to use Perl to connect to a SQL Server using FreeTDS.The recommended choice is DBD::Sybase from Michael Peppler. Despite the name it works for any Sybase or Microsoft SQL Server...

    tobyink already mentioned this, see above.
