Wouldn't happen to have anything to do with the .gdb extension? What happens if you copy the .gdb file to a "work" directory, rename the file to .fdb, and re-run the backup?

add the server-name in front of the database, like:

gbak myserver:baron.gdb baron.bak

or the ip-address of the server
gbak baron.bak

or just lcoalhost
gbak localhost:baron.gdb baron.bak

and the backup should work.
