Subject RE: [firebird-support] gsec - unavailable database
Author Bill Oliver
That is close, but isn't quite right...

The knowledge base article refers to the message :
unable to open database
your user name and password are not defined......

but, the message I am actually getting is:
unavailable database
unable to open database

If I supply the database, userid, and password on the gsec command line, I can connect.

Subject: [firebird-support] gsec - unavailable database


When I try to run gsec, I get the "unavailable database" message, see example below. Evidently firebird can't find the security.fdb file. When I specify the database on the command line, gsec works. I also can't connect using ISQL - I get the same message.

I am running 1.5 RC8 on Windows 2000 Server SP3. I have this working on another (Windows XP) machine, so I am stumped.

Thanks in advance for any help.

C:\firebird1.5\bin>gsec -user sysdba -password masterkey
unavailable database unable to open database

C:\firebird1.5\bin>gsec -database endure2:\firebird1.5\security.fdb -user sysdba -password masterkey
GSEC> quit
