Identify Users and Servers to LAN Manager

The security administrator for LAN Manager must define principals (defined users) to the security mechanism. Use LAN Manager’s User Manager utility to identify all users for the system.

You need not enter the SAP ASE name as a principal to LAN Manager. However, the Windows user account that you use to start SAP ASE must be defined as a valid principal to LAN Manager. For example, to use an Windows account named “servadmin” to start SAP ASE, you must define “servadmin” as a principal to LAN Manager.

This rule applies whether you start SAP ASE through SAP Control Central or as an Windows service. See the Installation Guide.

For detailed information about the User Manager utility, see your Windows documentation.
