I am using OrCad CIS 16.5 and I would like to use my company server to host the CIS database. We are using mySQL. I have set up a database with the properties as described in the help and created a new odbm data source. However, if I want to create a new data source in OrCad CIS preferences it doesn't appear in the options. I was wondering if OrCAD accepts mySQL as data base? Does anyone have a document how to set up the database on mysql and integrate it into OrCad CIS?
Many thanks in advance.
Capture CIS uses a technology called ODBC to work with "any" database that supports an ODBC driver.
CIP is specifically design to use Microsoft technologies, Internet Information Services and SQL Server, these technologies are NOT available to Linux platforms, you must use a Windows platform to be able to install and use the CIP. See the Minimum Requirements for Installing CIP on page 8 of the Installation Guide you mentioned.
