Data source name not found and no default driver specified

Overview

Data source name not found and no default driver specified.

The ODBC Data Source Administrator on the Windows Server that hosts the SolarWinds software already has in its list of User DSN and System DSN the ODBC driver for the target server.

Environment

All SAM versions

Cause 

-Incompatible 'bit-ness' between the driver and the bit-mode used on the SAM monitor.

 

 

Resolution

  1. Edit the SAM monitor's ADVANCED section. If it is currently using x86, replace it with x64. Or if it is currently using x64, use x86 instead.
  2. Click Save.
  3. Try testing the SAM monitor again.
