KB#00310-fserr=5, fserrs=-21 when connecting to a datasource via the ODBC Driver

Title:

fserr=5, fserrs=-21 when connecting to a datasource via the ODBC Driver

Description:

Possible causes include: 

1) There are spaces in the config.tpm file before the equals sign (=) 

DICTIONARY =/<server,port=5150>/u/bbx/BBDICT/ 
DATA =/<server,port=5150>/u/bbx/data/ 

2) The Data Dictionary definition in _ddedit.utl has the path to the Data files hard coded instead of using the (DATA) global. 

3) The DICTIONARY and DATA portions of the config.tpm file are not all caps: 
        Dictionary= 
and/or 
        Data= 
4) Incorrect or missing Network User ID: in the advanced options of the ODBC Administrator

Resolution:

1) Remove the extra spaces 
2) Use the (DATA) global 
3) Ensure that DATA and DICTIONARY are in upper case 
4) Enter the correct Network USER ID: in the Advanced options of the ODBC Administrator
