Issue/Introduction

After installing Deployment Console on a Windows 2008 R2 server there is no System DSN listed in the ODBC Data Source Administrator

Cause

On a Windows 2008 R2 server the System DSN for Deployment Solution is stored in the 32-bit section of the registry.

Resolution

You can either find System DSN by running the 32-bit version of the ODBC Data Source Administrator:

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ODBCAD32.EXE

Or you can find it in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ODBC\ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ODBC\ODBC.INI\Altiris eXpress Database
