You didn't specify which driver you're using so I'm going to assume that you've installed the DataStax ODBC Driver for Apache Cassandra.

To specify multiple Cassandra nodes in odbc.ini, set the Host property to a list of hosts + ports:


For more info, see page 23 of the Installation Guide. Cheers!

Hi Erick, sorry to mentioned that I need to connect to two different Cassandra Environment from my SAS UAT i.e., Cassandra Dev and Cassandra UAT. I have already connected to Cassandra Dev and it's working fine and now the requirement came to connect to Cassandra UAT. So, here there are two different IP's, port numbers, DSN, Keyspace, username and password. I tried adding in ODBC.ini file but it didn't work for me. Request you to please suggest !!

You cannot do that. You can only configure the driver to connect to one cluster at a time.

This is by design for all drivers, not just the ODBC driver. Cheers!
