Yes, I'm aware that issues related to the new v16 beta shoud be posted to the beta forum - however, I still can't log in there.
I tried to log in the beta forum via my OpenID (the same I use for this forum), but it does not seem to accept it:
It doesn't matter whether I log in to my OpenID provider beforehand or when I'm asked to do so.
In contrast, when I log out from this forum and then log in again, I have to authenticate via the OpenID provider to log in again. This does work as expected. Therefore I don't think it has to do with any particular browser settings.
The problem happens on several machines I have tested with.
Background: I'm using a Verisign PIP OpenID. From OpenID account log, I can see that the site is contacted from the beta login page. Currently I'm wondering if the problem is due to the fact that the main and the beta forum use the same "homepage" URL (http://sqlanywhere-forum.sap.com/), and possibly the OpenID process has a problem to distinguish two requests with the same URL.
The login credentials you use for this forum will not work on the Nagano beta forum.
You should be able to create a new account on the beta forum using the "Create account" link on the login page. Once that's done, you can associate any OpenID / MySybase ID with it by going to your user page, then clicking on User tools / authentication settings.
I've successfully registered on the Beta forum using my MySybase account.
