|Subject||Re: [firebird-support] Re: Custom SYSDBA in Applications|
> As OP can easily imagine, makes no sense at all have a SYSDBA account with many valid passwords... AFAIK FB can't, by now, use this kind of autentication. So multiple instances is needed. But bad luck if there's no way to configure the Database path on the applications that you adquire.Actually, the OP ought to contact the vendors about this. Hard-coding the SYSDBA password in an application meant for distribution is very, very bad design. It means that *your* application takes control of the Firebird server on the user's system, whether he likes it or not, and whether it breaks existing setups or not.
