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.

tobyink already mentioned this, see above.
