Hi Fabiano,

You could mess with system tables, but I dont think it's a good ideia.
Besides you need to inactivate/reactivate all the indices (wich is
impossible for FK and PK)

If I were you I would extract the metadata, change it, create an empty
database, and use IBPump to pump the data.

see you !
