Getting the message Probe has to be started for connection test with DB2 probe

I have setup a new connection to a DB2 database and set the connection type to DSN. When I enter the DSN and the password, and select test, the probe hangs for a bit and then returns the following message:


A DSN has been provided that does not exist.


Validate that the DSN that you are connecting to exists, and that you are able to connect to the database using it in Windows ODBC Data Sources (64bit)

Once this is validated, than any time that you run into the Probe has to be started for connection test message, you will have to close out of the probe configuration and deactivate then activate the probe. You will be unable to configure the probe once it gets into this state.
