I checked the users that have default roles in dbcontrol and it shows them as being default, so I assumed they were activated.

Also after some more digging I found that one role is identified by password, and are not default roles assigned to users but are set when logging in via application. Talking to the developer I find out they are set to uppercase because he used powerbuilder and it turns out the main user account that the app uses was not connecting so I set the sec_case_sensitive logon to false and that fixed that problem, but I still am getting errors when users try to update tables that have sequences populating fields. I checked the role that the user has as default and it has select on all the sequences. Received on Wed May 12 2010 - 13:24:48 CDT
