Subject Re: [firebird-support] Re: How to shutdown Firebird server ?
Author Jocelyn Bernier
For some reasons out of my control, I need to close the Firebird during
some overnight maintenance. I can't use the embedded server because my
application can be on another machine.

Per what I can see there is no solution to that. I don't want to kill
the server process and I can't run Firebird as service. So I am stuck.
