Register a Netezza data warehouse appliance with ArcGIS Server

As an ArcGIS Server administrator or a publisher in your organization, you have the option to register your on-premises data stores and cloud stores. In doing so, you are registering data folders, databases, and geodatabases with ArcGIS Server so that services you publish can reference the data in those folders, databases, and geodatabases. Data registration provides ArcGIS Server a list of locations to access. Data registration also helps ArcGIS Server adjust data paths when publishing across machines.

The following sections describe how to prepare your ArcGIS client to connect to Netezza and register it with ArcGIS Server.

Install and configure the Netezza ODBC driver

To connect an ArcGIS client to Netezza, you must install and configure the Netezza ODBC driver on each ArcGIS client machine.

If your ArcGIS Server site is composed of multiple machines, you must install and configure the 64-bit Netezza ODBC client on each machine.

If ArcGIS Server and ArcMap are installed on the same machine, install both the 32- and 64-bit Netezza ODBC drivers.

If you configure a data source name for the ODBC drivers, you must use the same name on the ArcGIS Server machines and all ArcGIS Desktop computers from which you register the database and that will publish data to the ArcGIS Server site.

See Connect to Netezza from ArcGIS for further instructions.

Set variables

You must set the LIB_ODBC_DRIVER_MANAGER variable in the ArcGIS Server script when connecting to Netezza from ArcGIS Server on a Linux machine.

See Configure a database connection for ArcGIS Server for more information.

Grant privileges

The Netezza group that will connect to the database and publish data must be granted privileges to access the data.

The group needs read access to the data. The privileges that must be granted in the database are as follows:

  • Select on _V_SYS_PRIV
  • Select on SPATIAL_REF_SYS
  • Execute on LIBGEOSLIBS
  • Execute on LIBSTDCPP
  • Execute on FUNCTION
  • Select on all datasets to be published

See Privileges for using ArcGIS with Netezza for more information.

Connect to Netezza

To register a Netezza database with an ArcGIS Server site, you'll need the following information:

  • The type of database platform to which you are connecting (in this case, Netezza)
  • The ODBC data source name for the Netezza database or, if an ODBC data source name is not configured, use the following syntax to connect:

    ServerName=<host>;Port=<port number>;Database=<database name>

    See Database connections in ArcMap for more information and an example.

  • Authentication type set to database authentication (operating system authentication is not supported)
  • A valid database user name and password, which must be saved with the connection

Register with ArcGIS Server

You can register the database from ArcGIS Server Manager or the Catalog tree in ArcMap. See the following topics for an explanation of registration options and how to register the database:
