Both, I think.

Well, it *is* an ISC error. This is a server-level operation. Your $svc_mgr value should resolve to "hostname:service_mgr" (where hostname is the name of your server. the service_mgr part is a constant - don't substitute it!) The service manager code within the Firebird server engine must receive a completely host-local ("serverless") path to the database.
