I have installed trial version of SQL Anywhere 8.01 on my XP box.
No problems here.
Then I started Sybase Central application and created a local database
using the wizard. The database and the log file was created in the
location I specified for it. Wizard never asked for any user IDs and
passwords.
I couldn't find any account management utilities in Sybase Central either.

Now I want to create a database schema by running SQL script.
I started ISQL utility and it is asking for the user ID and a password.

I tried 'sa' and 'DBA' with empty password and something in the password
field, and all combinations I could imagine and it always gives me an
error: Invalid user ID or password.
What I am missing? Please help.

See the following topic in the online help. I do not want to
put user id/password in a public forum, even though
most ASA users would already know it.
