[asterisk-users] Problem with odbc connector with cdr

I'm stuck with getting cdr records stored in MySql database. I have a
working realtime environment and have verified that the db connection works
fine when used via res_config_mysql.conf. I'd appreciate Your help on how
to get the odbc connector working as I think there's something wrong with
its configuration.

The problem presented itself as an error when making a call that was
supposed to be stored in mysql cdr: Unable to retrieve database handle.
CDR failed.
This kept popping up every time I was trying to have a call be stored in my
mysql cdr table, and I traced the problem to the odbc connector, where my
knowhow is about to end.

One problem may be that odbcinst -j outputs wrong ini files, I believe I
need these to be under /etc/ instead of /usr/local/etc/, but I'm unsure
about how to change those permanently.

# odbcinst -j
unixODBC 2.3.2
DRIVERS............: /usr/local/etc/odbcinst.ini
SYSTEM DATA SOURCES: /usr/local/etc/odbc.ini
FILE DATA SOURCES..: /usr/local/etc/ODBCDataSources
USER DATA SOURCES..: /root/.odbc.ini
SQLULEN Size.......: 4
SQLLEN Size........: 4

Odbcinst does see the connection, it reads it from
# odbcinst -q -d

I tried copying my connection information onto those files listed above and
I'm not getting any errors in Asterisk logs when restarting Asterisk.
# echo "select 1" | isql -v MySQL
[IM002][unixODBC][Driver Manager]Data source name not found, and no default
driver specified
[ISQL]ERROR: Could not SQLConnect

Here's the contents of odbc.ini:

Description = MySQL Asterisk database
Trace = Off
TraceFile = stderr
Driver = MySQL
SERVER = serverip
USER = myuser
PASSWORD = mypass
PORT = 3306
DATABASE = asterisk

And odbcinst.ini:
Description     = ODBC for MySQL
Driver          = /usr/lib/libmyodbc5.so
Setup           = /usr/lib/libodbcmyS.so
Driver64        = /usr/lib64/libmyodbc5.so
Setup64         = /usr/lib64/libodbcmyS.so
FileUsage       = 1

And here I hit a wall, how can I fix the configuration?

MySQL-asterisk is referred to in res_odbc.conf, whose label is referred to
in cdr_odbc.conf. When the odbc connector starts working, is this the
correct way to configure the cdr db connection in Asterisk?
