Splunk DB Connect - connect to Oracle DB using domain (AD) credentials



we are using DB Connect v 3.1.1. and have been traditionally using it with local (DB) accounts when connecting to Oracle DB. At the moment we're considering moving towards using AD accounts and Kerberos authentication but I'm unable to make it work.

On the Oracle side everything seems configured correctly (I'm not a DB admin) since I am able to connect using a domain account from external tools such as SQL Developer Studio.

These are the settings in DB Connect:

Username -

JDBC URL string: jdbc:oracle:thin:@db_server_fqdn:port:database

Using this configuration I'm getting "ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied" error.
Following some other hints from either Splunk answers, Oracle docs or Google, using oci instead of thin client I'm getting Java error "no ocijdbc11 in java.library.path"

Any pointers on how to enable AD authentication to Oracle DB would be appreciated!


@alanos I am wondering if you managed to find a solution for this issue.
