The forum will be unavailable for maintenance at some point from Friday, April 13 at 19:00 EDT until Sunday, April 15 at 23:59 EDT. Downtime will be minimized but the exact timing is unknown.

I have a bunch of users that are either:

  • not having their last login time logged in the sys.sysuser table OR
  • having their last login time being intermittently logged with no discernable pattern.

Obviously, this can't be the intended behavior and would be a large security hole. Is there a flag or property that needs to be set to enable this correctly?

This is in Sybase SQL Anywhere 17 EBF 3339.

Can I confirm the platform and build number (I cannot seem to find a 3309 release).

Mistyped the EBF. Updated it. Just as an aside, I waited until the checkpoint went off, so it's not that.

In further discussions with the other developers, we came to the realization that the users were not actually logging into the db. We had a secondary table which was supposed to be duplicating that data, so it appeared as though the users were logging in, but in actuality were not.

Obviously, you have identified a large security hole and are about to enable the intended behavior yourself, so I turned your posting into an answer...:) - Glad you have found the issue.
