ODBC driver 2.0.5 with support for Windows, RedHat 6, Ubuntu 12/14, SLES SP3 and OS X is posted.
You can find the download at http://hortonworks.com/hdp/addons/
A driver for RedHat 7 is expected in 6-8 weeks.
Also: Those of us using Structor may be interested in this profile which shows how to create a 2 node secure cluster, install redundant HiveServer2 instances and access them through Zookeeper failover using this new ODBC driver. A sample Python program to query Hive using PyODBC is included.
I am seeing errors while installing the 2.0.5 version on RedHat 7 as it is looking for libsasl2.so.2 v, however the current system only has libsasl2.so.3 v.
Is there a different driver for RedHat 7 with libsasl2.so.3v or is it easier to have libsasl2.so.2 files on the system.
In Carter's initial post he states "A driver for RedHat 7 is expected in 6-8 weeks."
So yes there is a Redhat 7 driver, it hasn't been released yet, but should be shortly.
