Hi everybody, I have .db file which is about 300 mb and it is created in SQL ANYWHERE 9 from other computer and now I want to load this file to my new computer on which Sybase central is installed with same version. But when I am trying to connect with database I always get this error message

[Sybase][ODBC Driver][Adaptive Server Anywhere]Invalid user ID or password  
Error code=-103     
SQL state=28000 
Connection parameters:  
Password=*** (sql)

Please advise me and help me how can I resolve this problem. Thanks in advance

Well, the error message says it pretty well: Your database seem not to use the default DBA credentials (DBA with password "sql").

Generally, it's very reasonable and recommended to use different credentials. So you will need to supply the correct credentials to be able to connect.
