These are the methods to connect to a MSSQL DB from the different TDM products using Active Directory credentials (or Windows authentication).
For Datamaker, in the connection profile properties:
1. For DBMS, pick "DSN-Less ODBC" from the drop-down.
2. For ODBC Driver, select "SQL Server Native Client x.x" from the drop down (x.x could be 11.0 for instance).
3. Provide the server and database details.
4. Click on the "No login required (e.g. Integrated login)" radio-button.
5. Test the connection and save the profile.
1. Copy the 64-bit (x64) version of sqljdbc_auth.dll to "C:\Program Files\Grid-Tools\FastDataMasker" and "C:\Program Files\Grid-Tools\FastDataMasker\lib\sqljdbc_auth.dll" folders (assuming FDM is installed at default location).
2. When saving the profile in FDM, leave username and password blank.
Note: The requirement to place the DLL file in the "sqljdbc_auth.dll" folder under "lib" will be fixed and no longer required in TDM 4.0 and later versions. The DLL file will need to be directly placed under the "lib" folder instead.
1. Copy the 64-bit (x64) version of sqljdbc_auth.dll to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Grid-Tools\GTDatamaker\lib".
2. When saving the profile in Subset, leave the username and password blank.
Use the ConnectionString property in the SQLServerActivity block and set "Integrated Security=True" to use AD Account for authentication against SQL Server.
For example, the connection string would read "Data Source=localhost;Initial Catalog=Demo;Integrated Security=True"
