Subject Can't create database using alias
Author Rick Debay
I'm using FB 2.0 on Windows XP, and I'm trying to pass an alias in to
CREATE DATABASE in isql. I don't want the script to determine the
database location, I want that set by the server admin.

isql -user inventory -password test -input "c:\DBCreate.sql"
Strangely enough returns
'Use CONNECT or CREATE DATABASE to specify a database'
But the database is created.

isql -user inventory -password test -input "c:\DBCreate.sql"
Fails with
Use CONNECT or CREATE DATABASE to specify a database
Statement failed, SQLCODE = -902
I/O error for file "localhost/3051:tstdb"
-database or file exists
can't format message 17:120 -- message text not found

DBCreate.sql contents:

CREATE DATABASE 'localhost/3051:c:\databases\tstdb_1-0-0.fdb'
--CREATE DATABASE 'localhost/3051:tstdb'
USER 'inventory'

Alias.conf contents:

# List of known database aliases
# ------------------------------
inventory = "c:\databases\tstdb_1-0-0.fdb"
