Get-OdbcDriver

Brian Lich|Last Updated: 3/8/2017

SYNOPSIS

Gets installed ODBC drivers.

SYNTAX

Get-OdbcDriver [[-Name] <String>] [-Platform <String>] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]
 [-AsJob] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-OdbcDriver cmdlet gets installed Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) drivers from the computer. Specify values for the Name and Platform parameters. If you do not specify a value for Name, the cmdlet gets drivers that have any driver name. If you do not specify any parameters, the cmdlet gets all ODBC drivers installed on the computer.

For more information about ODBC and drivers, see Microsoft Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) and Drivers on the Microsoft Developer Network.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Get all installed ODBC drivers

PS C:\> Get-OdbcDriver

This command gets all installed ODBC drivers. The cmdlet gets both 32-bit and 64-bit drivers.

Example 2: Get a driver on the 32-bit platform by using a name

PS C:\> Get-OdbcDriver -Name "SQL Server Native Client 10.0" -Platform "32-bit"

This command gets the driver named SQL Server Native Client 10.0 on the 32-bit platform.

Example 3: Get ODBC drivers that begin with a specified string on the 64-bit platform

PS C:\> Get-OdbcDriver -Name "SQL Server*" -Platform "64-bit"

This command gets installed ODBC drivers that have a name that starts with SQL Server on the 64-bit platform.

Example 4: Get all ODBC drivers

PS C:\> $DriverArray = Get-OdbcDriver

This command gets all installed ODBC drivers, and then stores them in the $DriverArray variable for future use.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type: CimSession[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Name

Specifies the name of a driver. You can use wildcard characters to specify more than one driver. This cmdlet gets one or more ODBC drivers that this parameter specifies. If you do not specify this parameter, this cmdlet gets all ODBC drivers.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: DriverName

Required: False
Position: 0
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Platform

Specifies the platform architecture. This cmdlet gets ODBC drivers that belong to the architecture that this parameter specifies. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • 32-bit
  • 64-bit
  • All

The default value is All. If you run this cmdlet in a remote CIM session, this parameter refers to the platform architecture on the remote computer.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 
Accepted values: 32-bit, 64-bit, All

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

CommonParameters

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -InformationAction, -InformationVariable, -OutVariable, -OutBuffer, -PipelineVariable, -Verbose, -WarningAction, and -WarningVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.
