Subject FB Server down, error in application event viewer
Author Ed Dressel
I came to work this AM and found that the FB (1.5.4) DB Server was down on my website. The guardian failed (did it try? I don't know) to bring it back up. I looked at the event log and found this entry:
The description for Event ID ( 281 ) in Source ( FirebirdGuardianDefaultInstance ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: Abnormal Termination: C:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_1_5\bin\fbserver.exe: terminated abnormally (4294967295).
Any ideas what might cause it to shut down? Anything I might look for?
