Providing initial MobiLink passwords (mluser utility)

The password for each user is stored with the user name in the ml_user table. The mluser utility is useful for batch additions.

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for this task.

Context and remarks

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

 Task
  1. Create a file with a single user name and password on each line, separated by white space.

  2. At a command prompt, run the mluser utility using the -f option if you have a file containing user names and passwords, or the -u and -p options if you are specifying a single user name and password.

Results

The specified users and passwords are created.

Example

In the following 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.

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