Providing initial passwords for users


The password for each user is stored along with the user name in the ml_user table. You can provide initial passwords from Sybase Central, or using the mluser command line utility.

Sybase Central is a convenient way of adding individual users and passwords. The mluser utility is useful for batch additions.

If you create a user with no password, then MobiLink performs no user authentication for that user: they can connect and synchronize without supplying a password.

To provide an initial MobiLink password for a user (Sybase Central Admin mode)
  1. Connect to the consolidated database from Sybase Central using the MobiLink plug-in.

  2. Select Admin mode:

    Choose Mode > Admin.

  3. Open the Users folder.

  4. Choose File > New > User.

    The Create User wizard appears.

  5. Follow the prompts in the wizard.

To provide initial MobiLink passwords (command line)
  1. Create a file with a single user name and password on each line, separated by white space.

  2. Open a command prompt, and execute the mluser command line utility. For example:

    mluser -c "dsn=my_dsn" -f password-file

    In this command line, the -c option specifies an ODBC connection to the consolidated database. The -f option specifies the file containing the user names and passwords.
