Why is Splunk DB Connect not detecting the HP NonStop JDBC Type 4 Driver?

Path Finder

Hi

I am trying to configure the Splunk DB Connect Add-on to use the JDBC driver to connect to a HP NonStop SQL/MX database. I have the driver (t4sqlmx.jar) in the $SPLUNKHOME$/etc/apps/splunkappdbconnect/bin/lib/ directory and my dbconnectiontypes.conf is below:

[t4sqlmx]
displayName = HP NonStop SQL
serviceClass = com.splunk.dbx2.DefaultDBX2JDBC
jdbcUrlFormat = jdbc:t4sqlmx://<host>:<port>/:
jdbcDriverClass = com.tandem.t4jdbc.SQLMXDriver
testQuery = SELECT 1
port = 18650

Splunk DB Connect however does not seem to detect the driver. I got the driverclass from the documentation:
http://h20565.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?sp4ts.oid=4201303&docId=emr_na-c03465685&docLocal...

Not sure if anyone has had experience with HP Nonstop DBs?

Thanks
B

Hey Brandonf,

You need to put drivers in: $SPLUNKHOME/etc/apps/splunkappdbconnect/drivers directory
