|Subject||Database shutdown leaves connections|
|Author||Glenn Thomas Hvidsten|
I’m having problems shutting down a databases on the server.
I have followed the instructions in the documentation: http://www.firebirdsql.org/manual/gfix-dbstartstop.html
And by using the following command the database seems to be shut down:
gfix -user SYSDBA -pas masterkey -shut full -force 0 C:\Database\MyDB.fdb
This works to some degree as I can’t connect to the database (using DB Workbench), but the shutdown still leaves “something” hanging as the file is still in use and I can neither move nor rename it.
Why isn’t this command working properly and what can I do to shut down the database so that I can rename it (in order to restore a backup).
This is Firebird 2.1 on a Windows server with the default installation parameters.
