Cannot find Hive data source in ODBC data source list after HiveODBC's installed

    I’m trying to apply SSAS onto local single node Hive. First problem I’ve encounter here is that I cannot find Hive data source in the ODBC data source list.

    I did all the steps provided by online materials.

    And set up a Hive ODBC Data Source Name, configure Host & Port correctly. Also when I click “Test” button in Figure 1, it pops up the Microsoft Hive ODBC Driver Data Source Test window as Figure 2, telling me connection is successful. However, when I try to test it manually in Excel, add data source, I cannot find the Hive Data source I just created. I’ve already tried to restart my computer, yet still not working.

    I’m new to this. Would you please help me out here? Many thanks.

    Hi Bryan,

    Do you see the sample hortonworks hive DSN when you add external database source in Excel? Also is this windows client or Mac?
