# Problem attempting to connect to the main dataset

Problem:

A problem was encountered while attempting to authenticate to the main dataset. Failed to synchronize changes.

Solution:

1. Note the standalone station ID number.
2. Run mad.exe to obtain the IP hash for the Standalone computer. Keep a note of the value.
3. Start the Pervasive Control Centre on the Standalone computer.
4. Open the STANDALONE.BTR table. This may require an ODBC connection to the local Standalone dataset.
5. Remove the data under the Machine column for the standalone corresponding to the Standalone station.
6. Add the hash information from #2 to the Machine column for the standalone corresponding to the Standalone station.
7. Close the Pervasive Control Centre and run the Standalone update.
