Hmm...did I need to say specifically that if you tried to restore -c[reate_database] over the top of the existing security.fdb, it wouldn't work?

And, for the restore (which you should do into the BACKUP directory!!) don't forget that 'thepassw' will be whatever is the SYSDBA password *currently* on the new installation (not what it is going to be, once you have the correct security database installed.)

Have you thought about opening up the Quick Start Guide and refreshing your memory about how things are meant to be done?
