  1. Hi Rick,
    I am doing a fresh installation of VCenter 6 on Windows 2012 Server, VCenter as same platform Windows 2012, MS SQL 2014 also W2012. While creating the DSN, with Default Windows procedure it is qualified as Alias, but VMware documentation says VC 6 does not work with DB Alias. When i try to create DSN with MS SQL authentication it does not passed the test. VCenter VM, DNS, SQL VM, are all in same host same VSwitch0.
    Can you please advise which ODBC driver shall i use as on the MS only ODBC 11 is available. Is there any other ODBC driver version for VCenter 6 and MS SQL2014.
    I have consulted the DBA also and given all rights to domain admins and Local service permissions to installation users.

    Many thanks,
