Hi Myles!

Maybe a stupid question, but when the backup was made, was the -nt (non-transportable) switch specified? The default should be the -t (transportable) switch, so it doesn't sound like something normally done by mistake...

Unfortunately, I have no idea about your error message,

Subject: [firebird-support] GBAK on FB 1.5.. How to interpret this error message?

I am attempting to restore a FBK backup file that was from a Linux system,
but on a Windows computer (both running Firebird 1.5.5). When I go to
restore the backup file, I get the following error:

IBE: Unsuccessful execution caused by system error that does not preclude
successful execution of subsequent statements.
do not recognize record type 11.

I have been able to restore the backup file on the same Linux system that it
was created on without a problem, so I believe the FBK file is ok.

How can I determine what this error is referring to?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
