Hello,
Is it possible for a powerbuilder application running as the
user "bob" to connect to a database using the user's active
directory credentials? i.e. without prompting the user?

I can find code to do the authentication against an AD
server, but nothing for using the credentials of the
currently logged in user.

I hope somebody can help.

Thanks,

Jim Thurrock

Hello,

I suggest you check the registry after login. There is some
change of the registry for the user information of different
users.
