Expand Data Source name field in administrator.

On the page -- Data & Services > Datasources > Other
The field for the datasource name isn't as long as the previous page when 'other' database type is entered.

I was working a demo and created a datasource with the name: F4CF_FictitiousSalesPlanner and the field isn't long enough to show it all.

The initial datasource setup page has the view source showing maxlength="150", size="20"

<input name="dsn" type="text" maxlength="150"  id="dsn"  style="width:20em;"  class="label"  size="20"  id="dsn" />

on the details page:

<input type="text" maxlength="550" name="dsn" value="F4CF_FictitiousSalesPlanner2" id="dsn" size="12" style="width:12em" title="ColdFusion datasouce name">

Probably want to make the maxlength the same and the size the same.

Add a new datasource and click other.  Enter details for the datasource.  A long datasource name is possible.

Should a datasource really be allowed to be named up to 550 characters in length?
