AMAdmin_DBHealth is generating a false positive stating the Management Service is not connected to the repository event though an SP_WHO2 or SQL Activity monitor shows it is running and connected.


To update the DSN within the ODBC tool:

  1. Launch the ODBC Data Source Administrator
    1. On 32bit systems you can use Start > Administrative Tools > Datasources ODBC
    2. On 64bit systems, you should launch the tool from %windir%\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe
  2. Click on QDBms, then click the Configure button, then click Next
  3. If the DSN is configured for Windows, click Next otherwise provide a SQL username and password with access to the QDB then click Next
  4. Make sure the checkbox for "Change the default database to:" is checked
  5. From the dropdown select your QDB
  6. Click Next, Finish then OK
  7. Restart the NetIQ AppManager Management Service

The issue should now be resolved.


This occurs because the default database for the Management Service's DSN, QDBms, is set for a database other than the QDB.
