Hello freetds,

I am trying to setup a redhat 8.0 to connect to a mssql database.  I can
use tsql -S mssql -U sa -P and I get the correct prompt.  But when I use
isql -v mssql sa  i get

[unixODBC][FreeTDS][SQL Server]Unable to connect to data source
[ISQL]ERROR: Could not SQLConnect

I currently have two environment variables
