Cannot Authenticate Server Configured with a Multibyte Character Set

Problem: If the SAP ASE is configured to use a language that requires a multibyte character set such as Chinese, an attempt to authenticate the server fails if the correct character set is not specified in the connection profile for the server.

Solution: The character set for the connection profile can be specified in either of these ways:
  • On the Resource Registration screen while registering the resource.
  • On the Connection page of the Properties dialog for the SAP ASE resource.
For example, if your server is using the Chinese language, it may be using character set gb18030. In this case, specify gb18030 as the character set.
