Kerberos support using ADO.NET DB2 Provider

This question is not answered

Is anyone else using DataDirect for DB2 in a Keberos environment. I'm looking for some guidance on what is and isn't possible.

We have both LUW and Z/OS in our shop. We recently completed the Kerberos setup between Z/OS and AD and are finding that we cannot connect using Kerberos to our Z/OS DB2 instances because they require an SPN (Service Provider Name) in the connection string.

We are able to connect to LUW without without the need to specify anything other than to use Kerberos.

The two realms trust each other so we are stumped.

  • Hi Mark,

    We are looking into providing an option to specify Service Principal name during the connection, so that you would be able to achieve this. We will provide you an update on the support thread that you have created.

  • Hi Mark,

    We are planning to implement this enhancement in connect for ADO.NET 4.3. Can you please confirm if that works for you?

    We are planning to pick this up in coming sprint and may have a PRE-QA drop available for you to test around first week of May.
