Coldfusion Administrator


Can anybody help me in creating dsn for a Teradata datasource from ColdfusionMX Administrator.

Actually if i create a system dsn through the control panel odbc connectivity, it creates sucessfully. But i am not able to create the same through coldfusion administrar.

Since no driver is listed for Teradata in coldfusion administrator, i chose the "other" option for this driver. It asks for driver name,driver class and url for creating this datasource.How do i register the driver in coldfusion administrator ? Can anybody please help me in this.

Thnx in advance,

Most JDBC drivers come with some documentation. You can copy the necessary *.jar
file to

1. JRun/servers/lib directory (JRun Install)

2. Go to CF admin and configure an "Other Datasource" - think last option of drivers.

3. Refer to the docs that came with the JDBC Driver for correct Driver Class and URL

The root cause was that: java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver available for sample, please check the driver setting in jrun-resources.xml, error: com.ncr.teradata.TeraDriver"
