CA IDMS Tuesday Tip by Edward Gorga, Principal Support Engineer for September 16, 2014


When creating an ODBC Data Source for IDMS Server you need to select either a user DSN and system DSN.

A system data source is available to all users and services running on the machine.

A user data source is only available to the user who defined it.


See technical document TEC616754 for more details.
