Hi,

I am trying to connect Splunk Db Connect to informix database but I always get an error when I am saving the connection. I installed the Informix JDBC driver but did not work. I always get this error:

Encountered the following error while trying to save: In handler 'databases': Error connecting to database: java.sql.SQLException: INFORMIXSERVER does not match either DBSERVERNAME or DBSERVERALIASES.

I do not know why it does not see any match.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks guys

Hi @hxa27

Was just looking through the DB Connect documentation and just wanted to see if you saw this page. Did you follow step #8 under "Create a new database connection" after installing the Informix JDBC driver?
