Subject SQL Code = -838 Database ? shutdown in ? seconds
Author sboydlns
I installed Firebird 2.1.Firebird- on a virgin Windows 2008 R2 system.

I was reloading a database from back up. It ran for about 8 hours, reloaded about 26GB of data and then terminated with this error:

SQL Code = -838 Database @1? shutdown in @2? seconds

Firebird was still running and no one used gfix to shutdown the DB. I had to restart Firebird after this error before I could rerun the restore. I got connection refused errors until Firebird was restarted.

Does anyone have any idea what this means?
