Make sure you have updated both 32 and 64 bit ODBC connections. I guess you have not yet updated 64 bit ODBC connection.

Here are the places you need to check for 4.X (64 bit platform)

  1. (on server - all applicable nodes) C:\Windows\System32\odbcad32.exe
  2. (on server - all applicable nodes) C:\Windows\System32\SysWOW\odbcad32.exe (for client tools on server)
  3. Open the universe and then see the connection it is based on. "Test connection" and if there are any errors, fix them
