Have you tried using the ovf file you created with the ogrinfo command
line program? The error you're getting suggests there is a problem
rendering that layer and you need to make sure all is well with your
DSN and other virtual driver settings. You could also make sure you can
open an odbc connection with the parameters you have in your ovf file
from something like excel or openoffice.

From the mapfile reference
Name of a group that this layer belongs to. The group name can then be
referenced as a regular layer name in the template files, allowing you
to do things like turning on and off a group of layers at once
so that should work ok.
