I can think of two approaches. One, create a new ODBC connection on your PC and use that connection to re-import the source. Two, edit the source and click on the rename button. The second field is the database name, and editing that field will cause your source to appear to have been imported using an ODBC connection with whatever name you place in that that field.

My Ruby on Rails App needs to connect to a ODBC Datasource that has SSL only enabled.

Can somebody give me an example of connecting to a ODBC Source with SSL?

I constantly get SSL required error. I don't see the option of passing SSL Certificates via UnixODBC. May be something I am missing.
