FDM Connection to Scramble DB on SQL Svr does not save


Article ID: 195749


Updated On:


CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


My scramble DB connection in FDM does not reload after saving. The connection profile are saved at location C:\Users\ABC7925\Documents\FDM.   Can you please advise why?
Screenshot attached.



Java version might be the cause of the issue. FDM is installed with its own Java. But you might have another version in the environment. 

Look under ProgramFiles/Java folder for different versions of Java installed. 



Release : 4.9

Component : CA Test Data Manager


Looking at FDM logs ( C:\%AppData%\Roaming\Grid-Tools\FastDataMasker\Logs)  we saw that  the Java Version used is : 11.3  even though JAVA_HOME is set to OpenJDK1.8.0.212 

ProgramFiles\Java  folder had 

JDK  and  JDK 11.  


To fix this issue , We had to un-install  JDK 11  and  restart  FDM  and the connections are now showing fine.
