We are trying to connect to an Oracle database using DB_Connect v3, with "Windows Authentication Domain". However, it is not working, presenting "Connection Denied" login failure error. The user has the required permissions.
jdbc: oracle: thin: @ldap: //ldap1.acme.com: 3500 / cn = salesdept, cn = OracleContext, dc = com / salesdb
Has anyone managed to make this connection to a domain user and not local to Oracle database?
alter the connect string prototype in the DB Connect dbconnectiontypes.conf file to use a JDBC-Thick (OCI) connection instead of JDBC-Thin, something like this:
jdbcUrlFormat = jdbc:oracle:oci:@TNSALIAS
I already changed it to oci, but even then it was not possible to connect.
Note: DB Connect supports LDAP connection, you need to specify the LDAP URL in JDBC URL field. Consult your database vendor's documentation on how to generate LDAP URL.
The "Use Windows Authentication Domain" option works only to connect
to Microsoft SQL Server databases?
Windows Authentication Domain setting is only Microsoft SQL database, not for Oracle database as described in the following Splunk Document.
Use Windows Authentication Domain: This setting is for identities that connect to Microsoft SQL Server databases. Enable this setting if you need to specify a Windows Authentication Domain.
