Error description

  • ODBC connector stage provides access to DSN's we don't want it
    to access. Request this stage to read from the uvodbc.config so
    that we are not exposing connections to projects which do not
    need those connections/DSN(s). In summary, the ODBC connector
    stage does not work properly because it is a security risk
    because it exposes all DSN(s) to projects. Please fix
    this security risk and malfunctioning stage.
    
    DS 8.1 on AIX
    

Local fix

  • Explained to customer this is the intended behavior of the ODBC
    connector stage.  Suggested customer add only the DSNs to the
    index of .odbc.ini file or use ODBC Stage.
    
    Customer asked to submit enhancement request.
