Go Up to Registering Datasources

You can view the name, type, version, status and mode of a connected datasource. The Datasource Properties dialog also lets you view the middleware or connectivity software that is being used to establish a particular datasource connection. You can use this information to troubleshoot connectivity problems, determining vital information such as the server version, connectivity library used, and library version and date.

Note: For information on establishing a datasource connection, see Connecting to Datasources.
