Simply so, what is an ODBC DSN?
A data source name (DSN) is a data structure that contains the information about a specific database that an Open Database Connectivity ( ODBC ) driver needs in order to connect to it. User and system DSNs are specific to a particular computer, and store DSN information in the registry.
Subsequently, question is, what is DSN connection in SQL Server? To host Helix ALM, Helix ALM License Server, or Surround SCM data in a SQL Server database, you must create an ODBC system data source name (DSN) to store database connection information. Each SQL Server database you create to use with these products requires a unique DSN.
how do I find my DSN?
Click the Windows "Start" button and then click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security." Click "Administrative Tools" in the list of utilities. Double-click the icon labeled "Data Sources (ODBC)." A list of DSNs display. Click the DSN you want to test. Click the "Configure" button on the right side.
How does a DSN work?
Data Source Name (DSN) provides connectivity to a database through an ODBC driver. The DSN contains database name, directory, database driver, UserID, password, and other information. Once you create a DSN for a particular database, you can use the DSN in an application to call information from the database.
