Subject: [ib-support] IB Service Manager Error

I'm running IB Client on a WinNT machine and is trying to connect to IB
Server on a Win2K machine. IB Server is running as a service. If I try to
connect to the server using IBConsole, I get the following error:

Cannot attach to services manager
service D:\Develop\Proacc5\Shared\PASHARED.GDB:service_mgr is not defined

However, the connection diagnostics tool successfully connects to the
database on the server:

Version : WI-V6.0.1.0

Attaching ... Passed!
Detaching ... Passed!

InterBase Communication Test Passed!

Does anyone know what the problem is?

Best Regards,
