NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade redshift-odbc -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade redshift-odbc -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Amazon Redshift provides ODBC drivers to allow third-party SQL client tools and applications to make an ODBC connection to an Amazon Redshift cluster. To do this, set up the connection on your client computer or Amazon EC2 instance.

In Microsoft Windows, you typically set driver options when you configure a data source name (DSN). You can also set driver options in the connection string when you connect programmatically, or by adding or changing registry keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\your_DSN. For information about how to set up ODBC driver configuration options, see Amazon Redshift ODBC driver installation and configuration guide.

(If your client tool supports JDBC, you might choose to use that type of connection rather than ODBC due to the ease of configuration that JDBC provides.)

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
