This can be verified in the CSS configuration tool. To do so:

  1. Go to CSS directory and then launch the configuration UI (Run as administrator)
  2. In the Roam Printing tab, in the Database Information section, check the Source field.
  3. Test the connection to the Database by clicking the Test Connection button.
