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:


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.
