[asterisk-users] Problem with odbc connector with cdr

I notice you have MySQL-asterisk as your definition in your odbc.ini but
you are trying to connect to simply 'MySQL' with your 'isql' command.

Does isql work with 'MySQL-asterisk' as the DSN instead of simply 'MySQL' ?

I have machines that use /etc/odbc.ini and machines that use
/usr/local/etc/odbc.ini depending on if I used a package to instal ODBC or
if I compiled ODBC myself.
