Removing Security from databases

 Removing Security from databases

Here's a mildly odd situation.  Somehow, security has been turned on
on 1 of the databases I have.  All of the applications seem to be
running fine, so I don't think restrictive permissions have been
added.  I found this out when I ran mpro against 1 database, and a
login screen showed up.  I can select CANCEL and get into the database
just fine.

I am reasonably sure that I can dump the data, and reload it into a
new database.  Is there any way to disable the security in the
existing database?

I'm not very familiar with Progress security measures, just enough to
know I really don't want to be using them.

Thanks in advance.

Assuming you have access to the Progress Dictionary the Admin sub menu
contains the access to editing the database security.  Depending upon the
security options (ID of the security administration(s)) you may required
the user who created the security options to remove them. The action of
removing the last user in the security list will "disable" the progress
security.

Hi,

I think you it's because you call the bad initial program (_prostart.p)
which call login dialog by default.

Try to start progress with parameter -p _uib.p or -p _edit.p.
You need also to verify PROEXE variable and MPRO.BAT.

Could someone have created a record in the _user table? If so, and if you
don't use it, you could write a {*filter*} procedure to delete the records
in _user.
