What are the best practices for Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) 12c, 11g and 10g in terms of setting up JDBC connections to third party database software such as:

  1. Microsoft SQL Server Databases

In particular, when attempting to connect to Microsoft SQL Server (2000/2005) with Microsoft JDBC Driver using the following URL:


the following error messages may be displayed:
