Requirements for DataDirect Cloud On-Premises Connector
You must have a valid DataDirect Cloud account to use the On-Premise Connector to access On-Premise data sources. You do not necessarily need to have the DataDirect Cloud ODBC or JDBC driver installed. Data sources exposed by the On-Premise Connector are accessed like any other DataDirect Cloud data source.
Supported Operating Systems
DataDirect Cloud On-Premises Connector supports all editions of the following Windows 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems:
Windows Server 2008
Windows Server 2012 (Windows 64-bit only)
Note: Installing a 32-bit On-Premises Connector on a 64-bit Windows machine is not a supported configuration.
During installation of the On-Premises Connector, the following policy files required for Kerberos authentication are installed in the \jre\lib\security subdirectory of your product installation directory:
krb5.conf is a Kerberos configuration file containing values for the Kerberos realm and the KDC name for that realm. You must modify the generic file that is installed to contain your Kerberos realm name and the KDC name for that Kerberos realm by editing the file with a text editor or by specifying the system properties, java.security.krb5.realm and java.security.krb5.kdc.
JDBCDriverLogin.conf file is a configuration file that specifies which Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) login module to use for Kerberos authentication. This file loads automatically unless the java.security.auth.login.config system property is set to load another login configuration file. You can edit this file, but the On-Premises Connector must be able to find the JDBC_DRIVER_01 entry to configure the JAAS login module. Refer to your J2SE documentation for information about setting options in this file.
