Downloading database drivers

Some database collector installations require that you download and install a database driver on the target computer. The target computer can be the Information Manager appliance or a separate computer.

See Installing database drivers on a remote computer.

See Installing database drivers on an Information Manager appliance.

See Installing collectors that use a database sensor.

Note:
Two versions of the Microsoft SQL Server JDBC database driver are available: a Windows version, and a UNIX version. If you run the collector on a computer that runs Microsoft Windows, you must download the Microsoft Windows version. If you run the collector on a computer that runs Linux or Solaris, you must download the UNIX version.

To download a database driver to the target computer

  1. If you are installing the collector on the Information Manager appliance, log in to the SSIM client computer.

    If you are installing the collector on a separate computer, log in to that separate computer.

  2. Create a directory to store the contents of the database driver archive file.

    An example directory is as follows: DBdrivers

  3. Download the required database driver into the directory that you created in step 2, as follows:

  4. If you downloaded the postgresql driver, rename it to postgresql.jar

    After you download the MySQL driver, rename it to mysql.jar
