This came from the server as the result it asking to create an operating
system file (probably the firebird.log). Either there is no spare disk
space, or the server can't find the Firebird root directory.

Or (just a wild stab) you're using ib_sql and you clicked the Create
Database button (blue checkmark) instead of the Connect Database button
(blue "+" sign).

You don't say where the database is.

This came from the application. With the info given, it would be impossible
to work out what operation completely successfully.

>So it failed but completed succesfully? Huh?

Provide some info about the connection you're trying to do (location and OS
of server, Server, Path, Protocol properties of the client connection,
Firebird server version, Firebird client version)

Tell us what you're doing and what tool you're using.

No, disk shadowing isn't an issue on Win98. Need more details about both
the haystack and the needle.
