This document describes how to connect a Microsoft Access database via a custom adapter in order to perform a database introspection from a Cisco Information Server (CIS) that is installed on a Linux platform.
In some scenarios, you might want to perform a database introspection of the Microsoft Access database. Since there is not a Microsoft Access adapter for CIS that runs on a Linux system, you must install a third-party Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) driver as a custom adapter.
Install the HXTT JDBC Adapter
Complete these steps in order to install the HXTT JDBC adapter for Microsoft Access on the CIS that runs on a Linux system:
- Create a directory: opt > Composite_Software > CIS_6.1.0 > conf > adapters > custom > hxtt.
- Copy the Access_JDBC40.jar file into the directory:
- Click New Data Source, click New Adapter, and enter this information:
- Create a new datasource, navigate to the Advanced tab, and enter this JDBC connection string:
- Navigate to the Basic tab, and enter a fake value in the Authentication Domain field. If a value is not entered, CIS notifies you that the field has been left empty.
- Click Test Connection in order to verify that the JDBC string can be used in order to make a connection:
- Perform the datasource introspection.
