Perl to MS SQL Server with Windows Authentication

Perl to MS SQL Server with Windows Authentication

Perl to MS SQL Server with Windows Authentication

I need to connect from Perl to MS SQL Server.  The SQL Server account is configured to use Windows Authentication.  I believe this means the DBI connection string should not contain a user id or password because these are provided to the SQL Server based on a Windows credential which is set upon successful PC login.  I've seen connection string examples of Perl to MS SQL Server which don't use the DBI or they don't seem to use Windows Authentication.  Any help appreciated.

RE: Perl to MS SQL Server with Windows Authentication

Are the data source names (DSNs) defined under the ODBC Data Source Administrator window? (i.e. control panel --> Admin tools --> Data Sources)

Just asking - I'm floundering around in this topic myself.
