Greetings experts,

I am running Sybase 12.5 applications, including a PB front end and several processes.  I am trying to authenticate each app using Windows authentication based on users in Active Directory.  I know that this is done in MS SQL.  Does anyone have any insight?

Thanks!

Is ASE also running on Windows?

If so, you can setup integrated security. It's documented in the ASE 12.5.x Configuration Guide for Windows.

If not, you're out of luck, sorry.

You must be running ASE 12.5.2 or higher to use Active Directory but it can be done.

The above link points to a PDF that gives you pretty good information on how to set it up.

Best of luck,
Bill

Bill,

We don't need Active Directory. Windows integrated security has been around for years, since ASE 11.5 at least. Windows LAN Manager, Directory Services and Active Directory are not required.

Windows logins and passwords can be used if ASE (on Windows) is setup for either "integrated" or "mixed" security modes.

Beware - by default most roles and permissions are assigned to default Windows groups, which is usually not what is wanted!

Yes, integrated security is a real easy route.

Markv105 asked specifically about Active Directory so I assumed his server was on a non-Windows platform.

He as both cases covered now :)
