user SA does not exist in sysuser table...

user SA does not exist in sysuser table...

I am trying to prove the connection between a Oracle query tool and sql server 6.5 but I've a problem. When I try to execute a query, the follow message appear: "user SA does not exist in sysusers table". But DSN exist for this administrator user.
Why the tool don't see SA?, may be the DSN is created in a wrong way.

Thanks a lot in advance.

RE: user SA does not exist in sysuser table...

It doesn't sound like a DSN problem; it seems more like it is saying that the user SA is not a valid user on that database server.  Obviously, that could be a bigger problem.

Robert, thanks for answer me.
Actually, there are many programs using the user SA without problems.
Do you know what I can do for checking the possible problems? Sorry for my questions, but I am a new Sql Server user.


RE: user SA does not exist in sysuser table...

Pablo, I'm more of a SQLS 7.0 guy, and I've never tried establishing a connection from an Oracle tool (I thought they required the SQL*Net options, rather than ODBC?).

I guess I'd first try going to Windows' Control Panel/ODBC-32 and creating a User DSN that includes everything: username, password, database, server, etc. and see if, when you click Verify Connection, see if connects successfully.  If it does, and you can't connect using that same DSN within the Oracle client tool, then I'd say its an Oracle problem.
