Subject Re: [firebird-support] Multiple DBMS Access to single GDB files

T> Is there any sense in doing this?

Clustering/Load balancing comes to mind, if the database server supports it
(which Firebird currently doesn't).

T> Can one do it with IB/FB?

No; access to network files is disabled by default; even access to the same
local file from multiple Firebird servers is also disabled in SS.

T> Should one do this? (IMHO, NO, DEFINITELY NOT!)

Not currently. And, certainly, not without a clear requirement, just for the fun of it. :-)
