DPA repository creation on Azure SQL fails when the user name contains an @ symbol

Updated January 29, 2019


When you attempt to create the DPA repository on an Azure SQL database, repository creation fails if you enter the user name in a format that contains an @ symbol (for example, dpa@myserver) on the Enter Repository Connection Information panel. 


If the user name contains an @ symbol, the Repository Wizard returns an error message similar to the following:


An unknown error has occurred. The provided message is "Could not get JDBC Connection; nested exception is Failed to authenticate the user dpa@myserver in Active Directory (Authentication=ActiveDirectoryPassword).".


  • DPA 11.0 and later


Because of the @ symbol, DPA attempts to connect to the Azure SQL database using LDAP authentication.


Enter the user name in a format without the @ symbol. For example, instead of dpa@myserver, enter only dpa
