GoldMine cannot attach to database aliased

I'm moving GoldMine to a new server and I'm almost done with one exception. When I start GoldMine it asks for my UN/PW which it accepts, but then it says that it cannot attach to the database aliased. It is then asking me for a MS SQL UN/PW (the UN is already populated based on the info in BDE) and if I provide the info GoldMine starts with no problem. I've checked through BDE and I am able to connect without any problems. My ODBC connections are in place, I've checked GM.INI and found that no matter what I change the entried to the windows comes up asking for UN/PW on the DB aliased.
Any ideas on how to get fix this issue?

Thanks before hand!
