ODBC Connections for Online Administration of RPD

If you cant see the ODBC Connection Analyticsweb
Use the 32bit ODBC Client here
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe

The 64-bit ODBC Administrator tool can be invoked from Control Panel to manage user DSNs and system DSNs that are used by 64-bit processes. On a 64-bit operating system, the 32-bit ODBC Administrator tool is used for Windows on Windows 64 (WOW64) processes. You must directly invoke the 32-bit ODBC Administrator tool from the SysWoW64 folder. You can use the 32-bit ODBC Administrator tool to manage user DSNs and system DSNs that are used by WOW64 processes.

System DSNs are stored in the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI
Registry redirection is enabled for this registry subkey. Therefore, system DSNs for 32-bit drivers and for 64-bit drivers are separated. The 64-bit ODBC Administrator tool does not display system DSNs that are created by the 32-bit ODBC Administrator tool. Similarly, the 32-bit ODBC Administrator tool does not display system DSNs that are created by the 64-bit ODBC Administrator tool. Also, the 64-bit ODBC Administrator tool does not display system DSNs that use 32-bit drivers. Similarly, the 32-bit ODBC Administrator tool does not display system DSNs that use 64-bit drivers.

User DSNs are stored in the following registry subkey:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI
Registry redirection is not enabled for this registry subkey. Therefore, both ODBC Administrator tools display all user DSNs.
