Software required to connect to a DBMS

Your client machine (for example, the one running ArcGIS Pro or ArcMap) will need to have the appropriate client files installed for the RDBMS you are using. These client files are available from their respective RDBMS vendors, but some are also available on My Esri as a convenience. RDBMS client files available from My Esri are IBM Db2 and Microsoft SQL Server. Client files for Dameng, IBM Informix, IBM Netezza, Oracle, SAP HANA, and Teradata are not available on My Esri and must be obtained from the RDBMS vendors. See Database clients for more information.
