SMTP Sleeping Notifications


Anytime I use an ODBC connection (Sql Server Native Client 11.0 driver), I get responses from my DBAs saying that I have new "sleeping" connections to the database that locks others from getting to the data. I have used Alteryx at a previous company before and have never come across this issue. The temporary solution is to add ";pooling=false" to my Input Data tool for every SQL data source which is very tedious, but I can't find anywhere in the ODBC Administration tool that allows me to turn off the pooling permanently at the driver level or at the ODBC DNS Connection level.




I've tried both of these. Neither of them fix the problem. Any other suggestions?
