Splunk DB Connect

Explorer

Hi..

I used Splunk DB Connect to connect to DB2 on zOS but when i try to save database values in the splunk console i get the following error "Encountered the following error while trying to save: In handler 'databases': Error validating database: com.ibm.db2.jcc.am.SqlSyntaxErrorException: DB2 SQL Error: SQLCODE=-142, SQLSTATE=42612, SQLERRMC=null, DRIVER=4.16.53"

Also I edited the database config file in the /$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/dbx/local but i am not sure if its correct.

Guide me on the same. Thanks in advance.

database_types.confg file looks something like this:

[db2zOS]
displayName = DB2 on zOS
jdbcDriverClass= com.ibm.db2.jcc.DB2Driver
defaultPort = 591
connectionUrlFormat = jdbc:db2//{0}:{1}/{2}
testQuery = SELECT current date FROM sysibm.sysdummy1;

I checked the link which u posted and i had referred this link to edit the config file but the error remains the same. I dont know where i am going wrong.

We can't tell if your config file edits are correct without knowing what they are.
