I would guess the ingres driver is reading the ini files itself instead 
of using libodbcinst so its looking in the home one but not the system 
one. Try setting ODBCINI to point to the system dsn.

The error is coming from the driver, you can see that by the addition of 
the [CA] to the error message.
