I have a legacy version of Goldmine running which uses BDE to connect to an SQL2005 server. I'm moving the goldmine application and its database onto a new server and all is fine with the exception of the master DB password.

When Goldmine starts it prompts for the password. I enter the password and all is fine but I want the prompt to go away. The password appears to be saved and obfuscated somewhere on the old server but this was configured before my time.

As best I can determine, I use the bdeadmin.exe tool to modify the idapi32.cfg file but there is no password option.

No password is saved in the BDE configuration file.

You need to go into the properties of each of the GOLDMINE users inside of GoldMine (file|configure|users settings) and to the access tab there. At the bottom of the tab are the saved SQL username and password credentials the user will connect to SQL with.
