DLP Discover MS SQL and AD credential authentication

Hi all,

I'm trying to authenticate my McAfee DLP Discover machine with an MS SQL database, which is connected to the AD. As a result, I want to connect using AD credentials. However, the appliance doesn't connect to the database. On the logging of the server it indicated that the user credentials aren't recognized: Error: 18470, Severity: 14, State: 5.

Now, when I use a local MS SQL account, I'm able to authenticate with the database. I've tried looking whether I can actually authenticate with the database using an AD account and didn't find any information on the product guide, KB or help.

My questions is;

Is it possible to use AD credentials at all? If so, is there a specific setup to do so?

Any help would be appreciated!

Re: DLP Discover MS SQL and AD credential authentication

You are correct.

KB70411 states you cannot use AD credentials and suggests a local SQL user.
