This article describes how to create and configure a Data Connector data source to access data in a Microsoft SQL Server database through an ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) System DSN (Database Source Name). A Data Connector data source is needed to access the user's data so that a Data Connector import rule can later import this into the Symantec Management Platform database. For more information on how to use Data Connector or how to use different data source types, refer to the following article:

Part 1: Create an ODBC System DSN.
PLEASE NOTE: While Symantec Technical Support can help assist the customer in understanding how to use Data Connector and provide troubleshooting for it, Support is unable to create or troubleshoot an ODBC System DSN for the customer as this requires access to their database via ODBC. If the customer has difficulty getting this to work, they will want to contact their network or computer administrator for further assistance in configuring their Microsoft Windows Server. Note: Because it may be difficult to configure the ODBC System DSN, the customer may want to instead use an OLEDB data source. For more information on how to use an OLEDB data source, refer to the following article:
