Problem Description: I configured a 64-bit ODBC datasource. When I try to add this to the Coldfusion datasources I receive the error: 

Connection verification failed for data source: test
java.sql.SQLException: [Macromedia][SequeLink JDBC Driver][SequeLink Server]The specified data source is not defined.
The root cause was that: java.sql.SQLException: [Macromedia][SequeLink JDBC Driver][SequeLink Server]The specified data source is not defined.

Steps to Reproduce: Try to add a ODBC datasource

Actual Result: Datasource is not defined.

Expected Result: Datasource should be defined

Any Workarounds: I found that the required entry in the file ColdFusion2016\cfusion\db\slserver54\cfg\swandm.ini is missing.
I added this to swandm.ini:

ServiceName=ColdFusion 2016 ODBC Server



Hi Jürgen, I am unable to repro this issue. I am able to configure 64.bit data source with ODBC Socket. Are you on the latest CF 2016 update? Did you make sure both ODBC Server and ODBC Agent services are running?

Yes, ODBC Server and ODBC Agent services are running. I have two machines with CF 2016.0.05.303689. Only one machine shows this behaviour.

Thanks Jürgen for replying back. Which ODBC Data Sources(64Bit) or (32Bit) utility did you use to register the data source?

I tried both, but at least I used 64bit. And they were shown in the CF Administrator (I could select them).
