error message after upgrading progress

Posted by Admin on 11-Jul-2006 05:19


I have upgraded a progress application from 9d to 10.1Asp1.

After the upgrade, everything works fine except this error-message after typing username/password

"Failed db client principal validation "

where db is the name of my database.

I have searched psdn and google for quite a while without any relevant hits on this error message.

Any one know what this means or how to get rid of it?

Have you upgraded your database to 10.1A and if so, have you setup the new database options from the DB Admin menu for every one of your connected databases - see the doc for more details on the settings.

This sounds like you have added code to do a SET-CLIENT in your application but have not set up all the databases to trust the application users identity. I have certainly had this error when doing that.

Check your database options in all connected databases and check your trusted domain settings in them too. Take a look at the Exchange presentation that is posted on PSDN for some info on this topic:!default.jspa?categoryID=251&externalID=806&fromSearchPage=true
