Subject Server 2008 ODBC Problems
Author rhines_dh
I am trying to connect to a firebird database via ODBC on a Windows 2008 server, yet keep encountering an 'Open database localhost:xxx.FDB failed' error. The connection I am trying to establish is all local to a single system, to eliminate networking as the issue.

I have set up firebird and the ODBC drivers on two separate Server 2008 systems, and it works correctly on one yet I keep getting the above error on the other. Turning on ODBC tracing fails to output anything to the odbc.log file.

I have attempted this with both sets of ODBC drivers available on the firebird site with no luck. I also verified that I could connect via ODBC on the problem system to a mysql server database.

Any help would be much appreciated.
