Kerberos support for Oracle connections from Infosphere CDC tool

As part of mandatory application modernization efforts we are upgrading all application connections to Kerberos based connection, The only blocker we have is IBM CDC tool, which currently does not support Kerberos. We are not allowed to upgrade unless all connections are Kerberized. We have contacted IBM support earlier and we were suggested to use DataDirect driver from Progress Software, however after inquiring financially it was not making sense.We use Infosphere CDC to mirror/refresh data from AS400 (iseries) to Oracle. Below are the details of the product we are using:


Product: Infosphere Change Data Capture

Current Version: 11.4.0

Source Replication Engine: CDC Db2 for i

Target Replication Engine: CDC Oracle

Name from License file of the software:

Program Name: IBM Data Replication V11.4

Program Number: 5737-C30


Please let us know if there are efforts already in progress from Kerberos support in this tool or if this request can be considered on priority. This will help many other teams in our organization. Otherwise people have to look for other solutions or hacks.


Below are two support requests/case numbers for earlier enquiries:

    Thanks for filing this requirement. After evaluation, we think that the functionality can be provided without code changes.

    Please continue to use the support ticket to obtain guidance on the way forward.

    If necessary, we can revisit this enhancement request.
