Helen, did the verbose and this did not elude to much, i removed the
table the restore complained about but this simply moved it to the
next table. One theory is that the database was created with a
different user/password, but attempting to restore on a different FB
machine using the sysdba/password still encounters the errors. I
created a new database from the code and ensured the id/password was
correct, this new database i was able to restore, which adds weight to
the issue being database ownership, are there ways of checking
database ownership using the tools like isql, gstat etc..
