# List of known database aliases
# ------------------------------
# Examples:
# dummy = c:\data\dummy.fdb
rxs = C:\WINNT\system32\RXS.FDB
# rxs=/opt/firebird/db/RXS.fdb
test = C:\WINNT\system32\test.fdb

I tried creating the database with DataBase Workbench. Their support
staff referred me here. I'm sure the application just connects using
the SYSDBA account and issues the create database DDL command.

What exactly does your alias definition look like?
What exactly did you try to create?
(And how?)
