Providing initial passwords for users

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

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 without a password, MobiLink does not authenticate the user and a password is not required to connect and synchronize.

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. Choose Mode » Admin.

  3. Click Users.

  4. Choose File » New » User.

  5. Follow the instructions in the Create MobiLink User 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 run 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.
