Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,

I think you can export the ODBC registry (which will hold the ODBC configurations) from the current server to another. This is the location
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI

Since you are going to configure this on a 2012 server then you have to import (extract) it to this location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ODBC\ODBC.INI

Hope this helps!
