SYNTAX

InputObject (Default)

 [-InputObject] <CimInstance[]> [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-WhatIf]
 [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

Name

Set-OdbcDsn [-PassThru] [-SetPropertyValue <String[]>] [-RemovePropertyValue <String[]>] [-Name] <String>
 [-DriverName <String>] [-Platform <String>] -DsnType <String> [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
 [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Set-OdbcDsn cmdlet configures the properties for existing Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) data source names (DSNs). Specify properties to add or modify by using the SetPropertyValue parameter. Specify properties to remove by using the RemovePropertyValue parameter.

Use the Add-OdbcDsn cmdlet to add a new DSN.

For more information about ODBC, data source names, and drivers, see Microsoft Open Database Connectivity (ODBC), Data Sources, and Drivers on the Microsoft Developer Network.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Change a 64-bit ODBC DSN to use a specified database

PS C:\> Set-OdbcDsn -Name "MyPayroll" -DsnType "System" -Platform "64-bit" -SetPropertyValue "Database=Payroll"

This command changes the 64-bit ODBC System DSN named MyPayroll to use a database named Payroll. This example is designed for SQL Server drivers.

Example 2: Change a native platform ODBC DSN to use a specified database

PS C:\> Set-OdbcDsn -Name "MyPayroll" -DsnType "System" -SetPropertyValue "Database=Payroll"

This command changes the native platform ODBC System DSN named MyPayroll to use a database named Payroll. This example resembles the previous example, but it does not specify the Platform parameter.Therefore, configures a DSN on the native platform.

Example 3: Change a User DSN to use Windows Authentication and a specified database

PS C:\> Set-OdbcDsn -Name "MyPayroll" -DsnType "User" -Platform "32-bit" -RemovePropertyValue @("UID", "PWD") -SetPropertyValue @("Trusted_Connection=Yes", "Database=Payroll")

This command changes the specified 32-bit ODBC User DSN named MyPayroll from using SQL Server Authentication to using Windows Authentication. This example is designed for SQL Server drivers. Also, the command specifies a value of Payroll for the Database key.

Example 4: Change specified DSNs to use a specified database file

PS C:\> Set-OdbcDsn -Name "*Payroll*" -DsnType "All" -Platform "All" -DriverName "Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)" -SetPropertyValue 'Dbq=C:\payroll.accdb'

This command changes all ODBC User DSNs and System DSNs on both platforms with names that contain Payroll and that use a driver named Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb) to use the database file C:\payroll.accdb.

Example 5: Migrate all DSNs that use a driver with name that starts with a string

PS C:\> Get-OdbcDsn -DriverName "SQL Server*" -DsnType "All" -Platform "All" | Where-Object{ ($_.Attribute["Server"] -eq "oldServer") } | Set-OdbcDsn -SetPropertyValue "Server=newServer"

This command migrates the oldServer to newServer for all User DSNs and System DSNs that use a driver that has a name that starts with SQL Server.

Example 6: Change a 64-bit ODBC System DSN to use a specified database

PS C:\> $sysDsn = Set-OdbcDsn -Name "MyPayroll" -DsnType "System" -Platform "All" -SetPropertyValue "Database=Payroll" -PassThru

This command changes the 64-bit ODBC System DSN named MyPayroll to use a database named Payroll, and then stores the result in the $sysDsn variable. The command includes the PassThru parameter. Without PassThru, the cmdlet does not return anything.

Example 7: Migrates DSNs that use a driver with name that starts with a string by using a variable

PS C:\> $DsnArray = Get-OdbcDsn -DriverName "SQL Server*" | Where-Object{ ($_.Attribute["Server"] -eq "oldServer") }
PS C:\> Set-OdbcDsn -InputObject $DsnArray -SetPropertyValue "Server=newServer"

The first command uses the Get-OdbcDsn cmdlet to get each driver that has a name that starts with SQL Server and has a value of oldServer for the Server attribute. The command stores the results in the $DsnArray variable.

The second command sets the value for Server to a new value.
