Pinned topic IDA 8.5 Cannot reverse engineer from Netezza DDL - no DDL option, only DB

‏2013-03-27T00:20:21Z |
I cannot reverse engineer from some Netezza DDL. I clicked on File / New / Physical Data Model and clicked on Create from reverse engineering. When I click Next, it does not show an option to use DDL instead of a database connection, but wants a database connection (see RE2.jpg).

I cannot establish a connection, because I am using the Netezza Emulator, which is inside a VMware machine, and the database isn't available to my Windows environment where I have IDA installed.

    UPDATE

    I was able to connect to the Netezza Emulator, so I could reverse engineer from that, so my urgency is eliminated.

    However, I would still like to know how to reverse engineer from DDL.

      Reverse engineer from Netezza DDL is not support yet. The workaround is: deploy ddl to server and
      Reverse engineer back from database.

      Thanks,

          Folks, Does IDA 7.6  connect to netezza 7.0 version via jdbc/odbc. Reverse engineering does it work in this setup..

          thanks

    So has the reverse engineer from ddl been removed from IDA 8.1 or is there a preference that I can specify to allow the function that was in the previous release?
