Secure SQL Connections to Microsoft SQL Server

Our security team is mandating secure SQL connections to the Microsoft SQL Server database. We would like to enable the encrypted SQL connection channel using the steps published by Microsoft (link) below; however, IBM support has indicated in a response to a PMR that Secure SQL connections are not supported.


Note that we use SEAS, SSP, and External Purge services also that would also need to support Secure SQL Connections if they ever make connections to the SQL Server DB.

Also note that we use both SI 5.2.5 and SI 5.2.6 versions and our MS SQL DB is clustered.
