No. You work the other way around.

Rename the unusable isc4.gdb then restore the isc4.gbk that ships with the
distribution. Log in with SYSDBA/masterkey, since this is now the login
for the whole server. Change the SYSDBA password (might be a bright idea to
write it down and lock it up somewhere).

Then use a tool or write an application to pump all of the records from
USERS in the renamed file into USERS in the restored one - all except WHERE
USER_NAME='SYSDBA' of course.
