I had another HD crash and have rebuilt the computer, got it networking fine (sees TERMs, Terms see it, Shares are indicated). But time ran out on redundancy this AM, and I can't get control of the AlohaMGR (6.5.16 on XP), all logins fail with this this error message:
(The user could not be validated for login to the system)
The old login Userid and password does not work.
Before I lost redundancy, I had taken a userid and assigned a numeric password, Copied the DATA folder from the term to the server, made a NewDATA folder from that and deleted the trans.log file. Still no luck.
I am getting the feeling that the it's not picking up whichever DB file contains the employee database.
So I think I am at the point where I have 2 options:
Refresh the 21 days by installing the HASP on the Master, which I tried. I think there must be more to it than just installing the HASP driver with the USB Key, which does light up BTW, in place (per Coorsman,whom I respect). I also tried the SwampGas trick, deleting trans.log, I did that after closing Aloha on the Term, but that did not change the redundancy (error message after entering emp #, then returns to the keypad page).
The second option would be to get help with a usable database i could overwrite the existing one with and and then use the known ID/Password to get in. At this point I have no problem with having to re-setup all the employees (I can assign that to the idiot who didn't tell me the server went out)
If there is a third option, I am open. However, I really need very concise instruction, as I am only as good as I ever was any more (or something like that).
