I am upgrading my vcenter from 6 to 6.5.  The database is on an external SQL server.  

I am getting the attached error.  ODBC test between the vcenter server and database server is fine.  

I am check out this link but I am not sure now to identify the opened session and kill it.  

I am not sure if I should post this to the vmware team or SQL team so I am posting it on both.

Anyone who knows how to fix it please advise.  

Many thanks.
