DI Server Always Uses SA to log into MS SQL database even if SOAP packet

We have SAP 2007A. DI Server is

I noticed that even though I specify a different database login other than SA, it uses SA to attempt to login.

I know this by:

1. Looking at the SOAP packet in B1DI_Server.log (INFO debug mode)

It says there the dbuser name is SAPDEV (my dev db user)

2. In MSSQL 2005 sql logs I notice a corresponding login attempt denial where SA is the username specified.

However, if I change the corresponding password in the SOAP or web service packet to SA's password and with a random invalid database username, the LOGIN connection is made via the B1WS.

I have verified this by trying different combinations.

It seems that DI_SERVER is the one that forces the use of SA user regardless of the dbuser name in the SOAP envelope as per recorded in the DI server logs.

Hi all,

I have to agree with Mike. I am using B1WS with SAP 2007 PL42.

In Sap Business One Client we don't use 'sa' db user, but another one named 'sap-client'.

Using 'sap-client' in the sample ASPNETWebsite, the DI Server doesn't work and in the Windows Event Viewer there are a failed connection event for user 'sa'.

I also used 'sap-client' user with 'sa' password work!!

Finally B1WS, in my company, always use 'sa' user.
