    Hi Walter,

    high-level steps for creating the JDBC-system alias:

    1. Under System Administration : System Configuration create a system from JDBC-template.

    Edit the properties for this new system as follows

    a. In the connection property provide the following:

    Connection URL:


    Driver Class Name:

    b. Under the the user mappings property select admin,user

    c. Under the DQE property sert the user-id/password to the SQL server DB userid (e.g. 'sa' and password)

    c. create a system-alias for this system

    4. Go to User-Administration -->then under User Mappings edit the settings for the user that would be using the system.

    On the far -right hand side of the right-pane select the System-alias created earlier and provide the user-id and password of the DB-user to connect to the DB (e.g. 'sa' and password)

    Then u can proceed to test the connection from the System view and to create the iView.

    I hope these steps will help you.
