Last updated on APRIL 14, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle ODBC Driver for Rdb - Version 3.0 and later
Generic Windows


You are creating a Data Source Name (DSN) using the ODBC Data Source Administrator and the Oracle ODBC Driver for Rdb. When you click "Test Connection" instead of getting a "Connection successful" dialog box, you get an error dialog box.


This error will occur with a database service when there is a problem with the SQL/Services service definition. The service has Min Executors: set to 0 and another error that won't allow the executor to start, e.g., incorrect root file specification in the ATTACH clause or FILENAME is not spelled out.
