vCenter 4.1 “No 64Bit DSN Found” DSN Error on Windows 2008 R2 Server

This error will appear when attempting to install VMware vCenter 4.1.

A work around for this issue is to create a system DSN.

Then open regedt32 on the server and go to HKLM > Software > ODBC.INI >

Update its driver to: C:WINDOWSsystem32sqlncli10.dll.

Restart the vCenter install.
