You get [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified on 64-bit Windows


When you try to connect to an SQL Server on Windows 2008 64-bit server running 32-bit application you get the following error

[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified

And you cannot also find the DSN in the list of ODBC DSNs


You must configure the 32-bit ODBC driver. You have been configuring the 64-bit ODBC driver all along. This is not very clear to you (or me), and there is no explicit control panel items for both.

To start a 32-bit ODBC driver,


HP ILO 100 KVM Invalid username/password Error


You have an HP DL Series server such as DL150. You did purchase and installed the KVM license key, it did work for some time but now whenever you connect you get

"Invalid username/password. You have been disconnected"


Something has gone wild in the ILO Flash memory.


ssh as an admin into the ILO interface. For most cases you should use putty program which is free and downloadable.

Then type in the following commands:

show map1 license
(just to play it safe and copy and paste this into a suitable text file on your computer)
reset map1 license

Session will then hang.

Log back into the web utility and the KVM feature should now work.

IMAP Problem with iPhone or iPOD for Google App


You are hosting your domain with Google App and allowing people to get emails via IMAP.

You get a complaint from a user stating that:
  • They can read their email on the web
  • They cannot suddenly access their email on iPhones even though IMAP and POP are enabled in their profile.
  • May get "Cannot Connect Using SSL" message.
Possible Root Cause:
  • Google has disabled IMAP (and POP) access probably due to some security issues such as repeated IMAP access with incorrect password.
  • If this is the cause you won't be able to access your Google App email via IMAP or POP either, but most iPhone users don't realize this is happening since they may never use IMAP or POP clients on their home computers.
  • Try doing "reset Captcha" and this should re-enable IMAP or POP thereby allow the access from iPhone or iPod Touch
To do this, use the following url by replacing with your own domain.
