Subject Custom SYSDBA in Applications
In addition to our own programming (Delphi 2010 and Firebird 2.1) we have purchased PC based equipment that has also installed and used Firebird.

All of our programs (internal use only) either use a trusted login to the databases, or a user name based on the Windows login name used. The SYSDBA login is used only for database changes, backup/restore sequences, etc.

We currently have one 3rd part program where the program logs in using SYSDBA using a bespoke password (a cable checker controlled from a PC). We were able to change the SYSDBA on our main server to be able to have all 'working' databases on the same server.

We are now faced with a second company doing the same thing. Is there an easy solution (other than loading firebird onto separate servers for each such application)? Not buying the associated product isnt an option.
