Creating the user mappings for a Sybase data source

When you attempt to access a Sybase server, the federated server establishes a connection to the Sybase server by using a user ID and password that are valid for that data source. You must define an association (a user mapping) between each federated server user ID and password and the corresponding data source user ID and password.

About this task

Create a user mapping for each user ID that will access the federated system to send distributed requests to the Sybase data source.


Issue a CREATE USER MAPPING statement.
For example:
CREATE USER MAPPING FOR local_userID SERVER server_definition_name
       OPTIONS (REMOTE_AUTHID 'remote_userID', REMOTE_PASSWORD 'remote_password');

What to do next

After you complete this task, test the connection to the Sybase server.
