Enterprise Identity Mapping (EIM) is a base component of IBMi and uses Kerberos for single-signon (SSO). With EIM, user profiles are set to PASSWORD(*NONE) and authentication is done via Kerberos.
The native ODBC driver does not support user profiles with PASSWORD(*NONE), even if no user is specificed on the connection string. If the connection is coming from an existing job, these user profiles should still be allowed to connect.
Ref support case# TS002876632
We are using the native ODBC driver from existing IBMi jobs using 'DSN=*LOCAL' as the connection string. This works fine for users with passwords, but users with PASSWORD(*NONE) cannot connect, even though no credentials are specified on the connection. Since the existing job is already authenticated, those users should still be able to connect.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
