Error when connecting to Informix database

I am using Splunk 6.0 & creating connection in Splunk DB Connect. I am getting below error when I am trying to save connection to Informix database.
Encountered the following error while trying to update: In handler 'databases': JDBC driver (com.informix.jdbc.IfxDriver) for database type Informix is not installed

I have downloaded & installed Informix JDBC driver from IBM website. Informix version that I am using is 11.X.

Any help is highly appreciated.

If you are connecting to an Informix database, make sure the Informix JDBC driver (ifxjdbc.jar) is installed in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/dbx/bin/lib.

This should help in connecting the informix database.

Thanks,
