Subject Can't set Forced Writes ON for security database
Author skoczian
Hello, all,

I just updated my Firebird installation from 2.1.0 to 2.1.1 on Windows
XP Professional (SuperServer, both versions), and after reading the
release notes I tried to activate Forced Writes for the security
database using gfix.

The command to do this should be

gfix -write sync <path>\security2.fdb -user sysdba -password

Right? But I get this error message:

no permission for direct access to security database

Same message for Windows user with and without admin rights.

Nothing and nobody connected to any firebird database at the moment of
trying this.

What's wrong here?

Thank you,
