usually process is
- backup see data, store it
- restore creates metadata, restores data, data does not fit to
constraints - error.

It's possible. Tool name is IBBackupSurgeon.
You can dig in that direction, too.

You can't do that. You can restore metadata+data or only metadata.
Gbak is unable to restore data into existing database.
So, please explain what you are doing.

Tn> We have FB 2.1.

this is misty. I know 5 versions of 2.1. 2.1.0, 2.1.1, 2.1.2...
and all of them up to 2.1.4 have bugfixes.
