When set to True, the Cognos data source is built based on ODBC with the RDB2 database name (which is not always the same as the project ID) and must be manually built in advance. The default setting isFalse.

In Cognos Server, the IBM Cognos Service must be changed from Local System account to This account, and This account needs to be set as a Windows account that is used to log into the RDB2 database. The setting is located on the IBM Cognos Service's Properties dialog via the Log On tab.
