Changing passwords

MobiLink provides a mechanism for end users to change their password. The interface differs between UltraLite and SQL Anywhere clients.

To prompt your end users to enter MobiLink passwords

  • The mechanism for supplying the user name and password is different for UltraLite and SQL Anywhere clients.

    • SQL Anywhere   Supply a valid existing password together with the new password on the dbmlsync command line, or in the dbmlsync connection window if you do not supply command line parameters.

      See -mp option and -mn option.

    • UltraLite   When synchronizing, the application must supply the existing password in the password field of the synchronization structure and the new password in the new_password field.

      See Password synchronization parameter and New Password synchronization parameter.

An initial password can be set in the consolidated server or on the first synchronization attempt. See Providing initial passwords for users and Synchronizations from new users.

Once a password is assigned, you cannot reset the password to an empty string from the client side.
