SAP Connection to Server

Hi,

we have a user who has to connect to the server on every login. She has to type the server username and password each time. I tried giving it the IP address instead of the server name and tried re-installing SAP but it is still the same.

Any ideas why this could be happening please?

Thanks.

    Hi,

    Trusted Connection uses Windows Authentication for connecting to the database. This means you have to set up security access on the database server for this Windows user account or user group. This isn't the cause of the problem that is losing the connection details each time.

    You don't mention which version of SBO you are using so I'm going to assume it's 2007A or 2007B. In these versions, the connection settings are stored in a profile specific folder on the workstation. If you delete these files and then enter the login details again then this normally solves the problem of the settings not being saved:

    1) Close SBO on the workstation

    2) Open WIndows Explorer and go to the following folder:

    C:\Documents and Settings\<Profile>\Local Settings\Application Data\SAP\SAP Business One

    where <Profile> is the name of the users account in Windows.

    3) Delete all the files in this folder

    4) Log back in to SBO and enter the connection details again. Once successfully logged in, log back out and the settings should now be saved.

    Kind Regards,

    Owen
