Datamaker Fatal Logon error- Data source name not found and no default driver specified

CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


When creating a connection profile in Datamaker for DB2, I am receiving this error message, despite being able to connect through another application like Fast Data Masker: 

FATAL CA Test Data Manager- Datamaker logon error 
Cannot connect using supplied values. 
Connection: Data Source 
Profile: DB2 
odbc: 999 
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified 


I tried copying the db2jcc.jar,db2jcc_license_cisuz.jar jar files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Grid-Tools\GTDatamaker\lib directory of the TDM server, but that did not resolve the issue.


CA Test Data Manager (TDM)- Datamaker


For Datamaker, you will need a licensed version of the client side software called IBM DB2 Connect (IBM Data Server client). See supported data sources here:

Once you have this version of DB2, you should be able to create a connection profile using these directions:


1. On the 'Create New Profile in Test Data Repository' window, choose the 'Profile' name. 
2. In the DBMS drop down list, choose the 'ODBC' option. 
3. In the ODBC Source drop down list, if you don't already have one listed you will need to create one. Click on the icon next to the drop down. 
4. In the 'ODBC Data Source Administrator' window, click on the 'Add' button. If you add a system DSN, then any user will be able to use this profile connection. 
5. Select the 'IBM DB2 ODBC DRIVER- DB2COPY1' driver from the list and click the 'Finish' button. 
6. In the 'ODBC IBM DB2 Driver-Add' window, choose the 'Data source name' (what you wish to call the connection), the 'Database alias', and the 'Description'. 
7. Before clicking 'OK', click the 'Configure' button. 
8. Enter in your User ID and Password, then click the 'Connect' button. You should receive a 'Connection is successful' message. Click the 'OK' button. 
9. In the 'ODBC IBM DB2 Driver-Add' window, click the 'OK' button. 
10. On the 'Create New Profile in Test Data Repository' window, click the green arrow 'Refresh' button. 
11. Now select the ODBC Source drop down list and choose the source you just added. 
12. Choose the 'Use specified login details' radio button to add your User ID, Password, click 'Store Password' button, and add your Default Schema. 
13. Click the green gear button to test the connection. You should receive a message that the connection details are valid. 
14. Now click the green checkmark button. Now the profile is added to your Datamaker profile list.
