Issue/Introduction



We are seeing the following jdbc entries in our wasp.cfg in 8.51. Are these still required or can they be removed?

<jdbc> 
<3> 
jdbc_driver = com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver 
name = jdbc/nis 
jdbc_username = usera 
jdbc_url = jdbc:sqlserver://;serverName=anson;databaseName=NimsoftSLM;applicationName=/domain/hub/umprobot/dap 
jdbc_password = CrZ3OWHkfT0eZQIVUwiDJw==

jdbc_username = usera  
jdbc_url = jdbc:sqlserver://;serverName=anson;databaseName=NimsoftSLM;applicationName=/domain/hub/umprobot/dap 
jdbc_password = CrZ3OWHkfT0eZQIVUwiDJw==

Resolution

You are looking at a Nimsoft installation that has been updated several times over the years. These are database connections that were added via the dap and dashboard_engine probes, both of which are obsolete since 8.4.
You would now add these connections via the dashboard designer and they would look completely different in the cfg. If these are not being used in any dashboard, and I doubt they would even work, you can just delete these.
