    Hi, Cees,

    Thanks for trying HDInsight.

    I couldn’t find it online as well. What is your email address? I can email to you



    Hi Larry, thanks for the info. I later did read that the Microsoft ODBC Hive Driver can connect to linux Hadoop. Alas I need to sign in into the Azure Hadoop program to get it. Any other way to get it?
    And why is Horton Works not reacting that something can not be found on their site.
    Thanks, Cees.Wesseling at avg dot com

    Hi guys,

    Im trying the Hadoop Sandbox Tutorial here:
    It requires a Hive ODBC driver add-on. Im using the HDP 2.3 sandbox, I cannot find the ODBC drivers under addons for this HDP version. I can see that ODBC drivers are available for previous versions under add-ons but not for HDP 2.3.

    Can someone assist please?
