    ts stands for technical support. I have used it once in my 8 years of Sybase usage and was told by sybase support to do so.

    Thanks again!

    From a security point of view, in your opinion, should these roles have passwords assigned to them?

    I believe that adding passwords to these roles allows the Audit function to monitor the use of these roles. Are you aware of any major applicaitons that would be affected by having passwords on these roles?

    Best Regards,

    A responsible SSO and a strategic security politic are more useful.
    Don't add any password in these groups.
    Avoid to use the sa login.
