Since recent (LMS3.2) Cisco released the Open Database Schema support. In the guidelines I find info/procedures to access the database remotely via ODBC. However only Solaris/Solaris Windows/Windows is described. Is there any info how I can access the Database (LMS installed on Sol10) remotely via a Windows system ?

The instructions for Windows/Windows apply, but you'll need to first get the necessary DLLs to allow for database access. The easiest way to do this would be to install Common Services from the LMS 3.2 DVD on a Windows 2003 or 2008 machine. Then extract the DLLs, and uninstall Common Services.

It may also be possible to start the installer, have it extract the install bits to the TEMP location, then you can pull the DLLS from there. However, I have not tried this for obtaining database DLLs (only device packages).
