  3. In the Services grid, select a Log Collector service.
  4. Click Actions menu cropped under Actions and select View > Config.
  5. In the Log Collector Event Sources tab, select ODBC/Config from the drop-down menu. The Event Categories Panel displays the ODBC event sources that are configured, if any.
