Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Data Source Name Not Found Error '80004005'


What does this error message mean?

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005' 

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

/SampleProject/default.asp, line 14 

Here's the code I created in Visual InterDev:

Set Conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set RS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")

(Line 14)-&gt;Conn.Open "Concerto"
strSQLStmt = "SELECT * from TVChannels"

RS.Open strSQLStmt, Conn



ASP is looking for a System DSN called Concerto. It does not exist on the Web server. Even if it exists on your development machine containing Visual InterDev, you need to make sure that it exists on the Web server machine where the ASP page is running.
