ASA 11 Database Authentication issue

Hello, We're running Sybase ASA 11 and after a restore from backup we're getting an Authentication Violation when trying to use Sybase central.

the error is "Authentication Violation SQLcode=-98 ODBC 3 state=08001"

does anyone know how to work around this? no one remembers setting up database authentication and no signature file was ever created.

  • If the error occurs immediately when connecting, it is likely that the database_authentication option has not been set. You will need a non-OEM engine if that is the case. Sybase Central and other SQL Anywhere utilities should be self authenticating so there is not a need to provide the connection_authentication string.

    Hi David,

    I want to make this problem clear.
    Can you be connected to demo.db?

    This error attempted to connect to a server that has been authenticated for exclusive use with a specific application.
    Does your database need the certification?
