When launching Subset either through Datamaker or as a separate component and connecting to my database connection profile, I am receiving the following error message: 'Login failed for user X'.

"This driver is not configured for integrated authentication"

MS SQL Server is configured for Integrated Authentication.

CA Test Data Manager (TDM) - GT Subset

There are two most likely causes for this error message. 

1. The sqljdbc_auth.dll file is missing from your C:\Program Files (x86)\Grid-Tools\GTDatamaker folder.

2. You are are adding a username and password in your Subset connection profile. 

If you are using Subset with a MS SQL Server (MSSQL) Database that has been configured only for Windows Authentication, but not for SQL Server Authentication, then you will experience this error. 


The steps below will enable you to connect to and use data that resides in a MS SQL Server DB (MSSQL DB), that allows only Windows (Integrated) authentication.

1. Go to the 'SQLSERVER_DLLs' folder under the GTDatamaker directory folder.
- By default, this is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Grid-Tools\GTDatamaker\SQLSERVER_DLLs\x64. 

2. Copy the file named 'sqljdbc_auth.dll' from under the 'x64' subfolder.
- This is the 64-bit version of the DLL and is the one you will need assuming your system runs on a 64-bit processor.

3. Paste the sqljdbc_auth.dll file to the GTDatamaker directory folder.
- By default, this is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Grid-Tools\GTDatamaker. 

4. Re-launch the Subset UI.

5. On the Connection screen, enter the MS SQL Server database connection details.
- Remember leave the username and password fields blank since you are using Integrated Authentication.

6. Save the profile.

7. Click the 'Connect' button.
- You should now be able to use Subset without receiving the error message.

Similar problems will also occur with FastDataMasker (FDM). See FDM - Connecting to MSSQL DB using Windows authentication for details to resolve them in FDM.
