unable to authenticate using JDBC connection in IDT to Windows 2017


We are running SAP Business Objects Business Intelligence Platform 4.2 on AIX and trying to create a connection in Information Design Tool to a database on SQL Server 2017 . Followed SAP KBA 2531116 and installed the driver listed in the SAP PAM , Microsoft JDBC Driver 6.4 for SQL Server (mssql-jdbc-6.4.0.jre8.jar) on the AIX box, opened the firewall for this connection. Now we face an authentication issue "Login failed for user 'domain\FILN'. ClientConnectionID:xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx" . The same credentials work in Microsoft design studio to connect to this same database.

Any suggestions on what can be done to enable this connection ?
