check_mssql with a domain account

Has anyone discovered how to use check_mssql with a domain account? I have tried variations of the username such as domain\user, domain\\user, in single quotes, double quotes, etc. The result is always "CRITICAL: Could not connect to <hostname> as <user>"

Thank you
David

You cannot use a domain account with the check_mssql*.py plugins. They require actual database user login credentials.

Do any of the XI mssql checks allow a domain account?

Not as far as I know as none of the plugins include code for domain authentication. Instead, the plugins make a direct connection to the database instance/port/socket.
