From Andrescolo:

Im trying to use JDBC to connect an AS400 database.
I put the driver JT400.jar in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/dbx/bin/lib, restart splunk.
When i setup the database, i cant see a new Database type related to the jar file added, and i dont see any other place to configure.

How is posible to map database type with driver?

To match your JDBC URL jdbc:as400://HOSTNAME;naming=sql;errors=full, you could probably use:

connectionUrlFormat = jdbc:as400://{0};naming=sql;errors=full

in database_types.conf.

From Stepmmx:

I have the same problem.
I tried to define AS400 DB2 DB in database_types.conf
[as400]
displayName = DB2 AS400
jdbcDriverClass = com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCDriver
defaultPort = 446
connectionUrlFormat = jdbc:as400://{0}:{1};naming=sql;errors=full

but the connectionUrlFormat is propably wrong 😞

In DBVisualizer I'm using this format:
jdbc:as400://HOSTNAME;naming=sql;errors=full
