In my case installing basic instead of basiclite solved the problem but
first of all I would install the latest instantclient version

[IM004][unixODBC][Driver Manager]Driver's SQLAllocHandle on

The driver manager just reports that a function implemented by the
driver (SQLAllocHandle) that the driver manager was instucted to execute
failed. The problem is in the function implemented by the driver even if
it did not report why it failed to execute it.

There is one more thing I observed:
  DMEnvAttr =
triggered the same error message even with the basic instantclient.
Only after commenting the line or using TNS_ADMIN instead would the
error go away.
For instantclient you don't need to set ORACLE_HOME anyway.
