Subject Cannot attach to password database
Author cateye602002
I have a problem with the Interbase/Firebird SQL-Server V 1.0
I cannot connect to a database with a statement like this:

ISQL> connect '/opt/interbase/examples/employee.gdb' user SYSDBA

I get always the error-message:
System failed, SQLCode = -902
Cannot attach to password database

otherwise, when I use the same statement without user an password, the
connection is successful:

ISQL> connect '/opt/interbase/examples/employee.gdb'
-> successfull connected
In that case, I can execute statements like 'SELECT * FROM ...';, that
means, the
server itself works fine.

I get the same error, when I try to change the password with 'gsec':
error: cannot attach to password database
unable to open the database

the server runs under RedHat linux V7.1 and the database isc4.gdb
exists and
not corrupted and the user (root) has all the rights to access this
