You can check the ODBC connection in the Windows machine and confirm the DB being used.
Go to Administrative tools>ODBC>System DSN>Click on the ODBC and click configure.
You will see what DB is being used.

Or if you're using the vcenter app, you login to your vcenter (https://vcenter:5480) and click on the database tab (or button), and you'll see either embedded or oracle db type listed.
