The Update Manager 6.7 system must have a 64-bit DSN. This requirement applies to all supported databases.


  1. From the Windows Start menu, select Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Data Sources (ODBC).
  2. Create a system DSN.
    If you have a Microsoft SQL database, create the system DSN by using SQL Native Client version 10 or 11.
  3. Test the connectivity.


The system now has a DSN that is compatible with Update Manager. When the Update Manager installer prompts you for a DSN, select the 64-bit DSN.
