Have you tried using the database alias rather than the full file name with gbak?

This caught me a bit by surprise... I went to do a backup but couldn't. I was getting an error like this:

gbak: ERROR:Access to database "C:\xxxxx\File.FDB" is denied by server administrator
gbak:Exiting before completion due to errors

When I set DatabaseAccess=Full in Firebird.conf the backup went ahead no problem.

Is this expected? How then, does one do a full backup on a secured server, without using nBackup?
