Access Client: cwblogon on windows server 2012r2

Access Client: cwblogon on windows server 2012r2

We are currently preparing a migration to windows server 2012 r2 and I cannot get the access client working as before. On the old server (2003) I had a .bat file calling cwblogon and it worked perfectly.
On the new one, after copying all the settings (odbc and iseries) I am unable to get a connection with the cached password (returns length = 0).
If I set to prompt if required and I call cwblogon /c, I can enter my pw and it works, but as soon as I try to cache the password using cwblogon I get the zero-length error.
I would be grateful for any idea (google gave me nothing)


RE: Access Client: cwblogon on windows server 2012r2

Earlier today I thought I had found a solution by using a .dsn file including the Password,
this worked fine in Access when I changed the link, I could open the linked table, without being prompted for Password.

But after having changed all the concerned Access files, I discovered that it did not work anymore sad
I have to select the .dsn file each time in order to connect without Password prompt; if I restart Access the Password Information from the dsn file seems to be lost ...

I am not sure if this should not go into the Access threads?
