GoldMine cannot attach to database aliased

Posted on 2008-11-05

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!

    File | Configure | User Settings | Properties | Access tab |

    ... then look near the bottom, you'll see two fields for un/pw. These should be entered for each user. Each user doesn't necessarily need their own un/pw for sql, in fact, normally we use only one for everyone, since the end users never have direct knowledge of the credentials anyway.

    Worked llike a charm! So I'm guessing that the UN/PW in BDE must match the one that's in the user properties. It's always something stupid that will get me.

    Thanks for your help!
