However, if your v.2.1 database does not employ any new v.2.1 features you can do the following:

Use a copy of the Firebird 2.0 gbak under the running v.2.1 server to make a backup *locally*. Then *that* backup can be restored by the Firebird 2.0 gbak under a running v.2.0 server.

Don't try to use any technique that uses the Services Manager to perform the backup, since the SM runs the v.2.1 backup code internally.

I hope your v.2.0 server is v.2.0.4.
