Domain users cant see system DSN on Terminal Server

Hi,
I have a Windows 2008 server configured as TS, and I lave made an system DSN to one of our programs. The problem is that it only works, when I am logged in as local administrator.
As soon as one of my domain users is loggin on, the program reports that it cant find the DSN name.
I'm sure its a permission issue, but I can't find the right solution... I tried adding the domain users to the local admin group without luck.
Anybody knows how to fix this ?

I have made an export from the reg. And then I import it to every user through the login script.

Well this used to work in 2003 and now it doesn't in 2008; any one have a solution to this? It seems that only the user that created the system DSN can see it?

You can find it under HKLU.  Do a search for your DSN name.

This post was very helpful.  I used this on a Windows Server 2008 R2 that was having this issue and it worked great.

Thanks!

What I found today is that the ODBC Data source connections in the Admin Tools points to c:\windows\system32\odbcad32.exe.  However, when a domain user is logged on, they're actually reading from c:\windows\syswow64\odbcad32.exe which contains completely separate DSNs.  So if you want them to be able to read a system DSN on a 2008 R2 server, you'll need to add these system DSNs as a local admin using c:\windows\syswow64\odbcad32.exe
