DB Connect with instance name and integrated security

Contributor

Most of our MS SQL Servers require integrated security and the databases are not on the default instance. Our Splunk servers are all on Linux. I know how to use Java to configure JTDS to connect to these SQL instances using Integrated security, e.g.:

java -classpath ./lib/jisql.jar:./lib/jtds-1.2.6.jar com.xigole.util.sql.Jisql -user ...
... -cstring "jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://host_name:port_no/db_name;domain=domain_name;instance=instance_name" ....

Is there a way to do this in Splunk DB Connect (DBX)?

Windows Authentication (NTLMv2) can be enabled by specifying the user in the form of DOMAIN\username. This will result in a JDBC URL like this:

jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://hostname:port/db;domain=DOMAIN;useNTLMv2=true;otherparams=....

In addition, other parameters for the JDBC URL of an MSSQL database connection can be specified in the database.conf stanza by adding arg.<paramName>=<value>:

[mysqlserver]
host = ...
database = ...
username = ...
password = ...
arg.useNTLMv2 = false
arg.socketTimeout = 300

I found the non-default instance name part: http://splunk-base.splunk.com/answers/66459/connect-to-a-non-default-instance-of-ms-sql-server. The remaining question is whether Integrated security can be used for MS SQL.
