Environment

Release : 21.X

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Database: Microsoft SQL

Cause

This is caused by the JDBC driver and MS SQL requiring TLS/SSL to communicate and a trusted connection must be made.  This was not needed with previous versions of the JDBC driver and MSSQL

Resolution

The error is coming from a driver, not Automic, the resolution can be found below:

Edit the JDBC connection string so it has the following at the end of the string.

encrypt=true;trustServerCertificate=true

Example:

sqlDriverConnect=jdbc:sqlserver://localhost:1433;databaseName=Automic;integratedSecurity=false;user=Automic;password=???;encrypt=true;trustServerCertificate=true

If this error still occurs after updating the string, please reach out to a DBA to see what else might be needed.
