JDBC-File Error -'Data source name not found, and no default driver specif'

Hi All,

We are trying for JDBC to File Scenario. I have configured JDBC adapter by referng blog


But I am getting following error in communication channel monitoring

<i>Error during database connection to the database URL 'jdbc:odbc:Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (.mdb)};DBQ=
root\JDBC\Employee.mdb' using the JDBC driver 'sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver': ' Cannot establish connection to URL 'jdbc:odbc:Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (
root\JDBC\Employee.mdb': SQLException: [unixODBC][Driver Manager]<b>Data source name not found, and no default driver specified</b>'</i>

Actually my XI server is installed on Linux Operating system.. so I have asked basis guy to put .mdb file on XI server. He has put file in folder named JDBC

Do I have to install any JDBC driver on linux sys to make it work?

Please tell me where I will get this server

Any help appriciated

Thank you
