Hi all,

I have edited the jdbc.properties with the my database creditials and information as below

Sandbox/type=javax.sql.DataSource
Sandbox/driver=org.postgresql.Driver
Sandbox/url=jdbcostgresql://192.168.100.197:5432/Sandbox
Sandbox/user=postgres
Sandbox/password=pass

When I create a JNDI database coonection, it fails to connect to the remote database, and I get the following error:

Error connecting to database [Sandbox] : org.pentaho.di.core.exception.KettleDatabaseException:
Error occured while trying to connect to the database


javax.naming.NamingException: Invalid data source:'Sandbox'
Invalid data source:'Sandbox'




org.pentaho.di.core.exception.KettleDatabaseException:

Thanks,
