I like to rebuild a Sybase 11 database ( But I get the sqlerror -98. I have a authentication file that works fine for our own application. Do I need a separate one to run dbunload? Thanks for any help!

Is your "authenticate.sql" file located in the expected directory: SA-Install-Dir\scripts, on the machine that you're executing this dbunload command?

Thank you! I missed that. First I still got the same problem because I did not had the original authentication file. But after I read back the information via select * from sysoptions where "option" like 'database%' and put that string in my file it worked!
