Re: Cannot find ODBC Connections

Hi Alessandro,

I see that they're set up as user DSN. Is the user the Sense service account?

If it's a different user, then it won't have access to them. You're better off setting them up as System DSN connections.

Thanks,

Simon

Have you tried defining them as system datasources?
