Sybase Adaptive Server does not provide any detailed information if user failed to login, because of preventing malicious attacks. So, using Auditing function on Sybase Adaptive Server is required for confirming the cause of the login failure.

Although client applications may fail to login for many reasons, Adaptive Server does not provide them with any detailed information about the login failure. This is done to avoid giving information to malintentioned users attempting to crack passwords or otherwise breach Adaptive Server?s authentication mechanisms.
