Posted on 2004-11-30

 I have a Pervasive SQL v8.6 database that I setup and created, and I have locked a couple of the tables to only have access from the Master account. I lost my Master account password ! I also need to Disable Database security (Thru the Pervasive Control Center) but this requires the Master password also.  Is there any way at all for me to recover the Master password, or a way to Reset the master password ? The Master password is stored inside the DDFs correct ?  I am stuck!! Thanks for any help !!

    You are stuck. As far as I know there's no way to recover a password from a Pervasive database.  Time to go to a non-secured backup.
