You can do that within the CF Administrator under Data Sources.

This is something that is can be handled using the ColdFusion administrator. Do you have access to this?

Import question to ask... Do any other sites are applications us this same connection?

If you don't know which application is using which database connection, you will have to look in the code for the application in question and see what it's using. You might be able to identify that by enabling debug output, then looking at the CFQUERY tags displayed by that.

This is actually a fairly common problem with CF servers running many applications. CF doesn't really give you a way to directly identify this information, but you can work around this by keeping the information yourself, or by using sandboxes and keeping the datasources tied to those individual sandboxes.
