A few months ago I needed to get into a SQL database at work but the username / pwd had been lost, I went online and found a brief tutorial showing how to recover the password out of the registry where the database had been installed and working. Now I cant find that website again. Any ideas on how to a sybase SQL DB Password?

Which Sybase database? If ASE, the standard manuals document this well. If ASA or IQ, you're out of luck.

Odd, though. I was pretty sure the password wasn't in the registry for any Sybase product...

It's "Adaptec Server Anywhere", is that the ASA version?

I think the password was in the registry because of the software that accessed it. I think the software has been updated to take that information of out the registry because I've combed the registry and found nothing. Is there a way to hack it?

Also I should add, I dont need a password to change information, just to access it.

That's ASA, yes.

Unless something's changed drastically in the last couple of versions, Sybase themselves say there is no way of recovering or resetting that password. Suggest you contact Sybase Tech Support for confirmation. If I'm right, then from the Sybase perspective there's nothing you can do.

If your application put its own password somewhere you might be able to recover that.

Sorry. 8-(
