XenMobile Service uses the jTDS driver for connections to SQL Server. To switch to the Microsoft JDBC driver, contact Citrix Cloud Operations.[KP(1]
For connections to SQL Server from an on-premises XenMobile Server, you can use the default driver, jTDS, or the Microsoft Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) driver. The jTDS driver is the default driver when you install XenMobile Server on-premises or upgrade from a XenMobile Server that’s configured to use the jTDS driver.
For both drivers, XenMobile supports SQL Server authentication or Windows authentication. For those combinations of authentication and driver, SSL can be on or off.
When you use Windows authentication with the Microsoft JDBC driver, the driver uses integrated authentication with Kerberos. XenMobile contacts Kerberos to obtain the Kerberos Key Distribution Center (KDC) details. If the required details aren’t available, the XenMobile CLI prompts for the IP address of the Active Directory server.
To switch from the jTDS driver to the JDBC driver, SSH to all your XenMobile Server nodes and use the XenMobile CLI for configuration. The steps vary according to your current jTDS driver configuration, as follows.
To complete these steps, you need the SQL Server user name and password.
SSH to all XenMobile Server nodes.
In the XenMobile CLI main menu, type 2 to select the System Menu.
Type 12 to select Advanced Settings.
Type 7 to select Switch JDBC driver, and then type m for Microsoft.
When prompted, type y to choose SQL authentication and then type the SQL Server user name and password.
Repeat the steps for each XenMobile Server node.
Restart each XenMobile Server node.
To complete these steps, you need the Active Directory user name and password, the Kerberos KDC realm, and the KDC user name.
