Trying to connect to SQL Server 2000 or 2005 from Oracle SQL Developer having Windows Authentication enabled on SQL Server will fail with:
“I/O Error: SSO Failed: Native SSPI Library not loaded. Check the java.library.path system property.”

The solution is simple: place a dll called NTLMAUTH.DLL (NT authentication) in your system path and restart SQL Developer. Windows/System32 is always a wise choice.

Where to get this DLL? It is shipped with JTDS here.

Is there another option? Yes, enable SQL Server authentication.

ubuntu-serverUpgrading the Server version of Ubuntu 8.10 to the latest one, 9.04 is not a big deal as I read here.

I did it in 10 minutes as following:
1. Install update-manager-core if it is not already installed:

sudo apt-get install update-manager-core

2. Launch the upgrade tool:

sudo do-release-upgrade

3. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Good luck,
