XenApp 5 Feature Pack 2 ODBC Error

I am trying to install a new server into my existing farm but when i get to the Join a Server Farm screen i run into problems.

In the set up an ODBC connection to an existing database the drop down list is empty and when i click configure nothing happens.

What am i doing wrong?

If the dropdown list is empty, that means the installer is unable to locate a SQL Server on the network segment.  What database are you using:

SQL Server Express
SQL Server 2000, 2005, 2008

I think it appears you cannot go straight to XenApp 5 Feature pack 2 without first going to XenApp 5.

After that the ODBC connection was there.

Good article though!
