You can't restore a backup, to an existing database, if there are any
connections to that database at the time. Sounds like this is what's
happening with your restore attempt.

Trying to restore a backuped database using either
the IBConsole or the IBOConsole

I get the error :
"Database C:\SOME_FILE_NAME.GDB already exists.
To replace it, use the -R switch"

After setting the Overwrite option to True
and trying again, I get the error:
"Lock time-out on wait transaction
object C:\SOME_FILE_NAME.GDB is in use
could not drop database C:\SOME_FILE_NAME.GDB
(database might be in use)"

I suspect there must be a trick or
something in order to accomplish a successful
restore of my database using those tools.

Any pointers?
