Resolve error "Unable to connect to database. Error: SQLSTATE = IM002" when testing connection in ConfirmConnect

Product Feature: ConfirmConnect


When testing connection in IIS (Internet Information Services), following error occurs:
Unable to connect to database. Error: SQLSTATE = IM002 [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver.


The mismatch of Confirm and ConfirmConnect database config file locations/names. (i.e dbconfig.cfg, confirm.cfg etc.)


UPDATED: July 20, 2017
To check whether the Confirm and the ConfirmConnect database config file settings refer to same location/file:
  • In Confirm go to System Administration->System Configuration->Database Settings and check where the config file is being stored/its name
  • In registry on ConfirmConnect Web Service go to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Southbank Systems\Confirm.AM.Connector\CFGFile and do the same
  • Make sure both file are pointing to same file/same location
