Subject Re: [firebird-support] can't log-in as user acco unt firebird

You are not supposed to login as user Firebird, that is also why it is pointing to nologin. That user is only the user for running the service, and for security reasons you shouldn't login with it.

To connect to Firebird, you need to have an account in Firebird (created using gsec) and connect to the service (if it is running) from your own OS user account.

Datum: ma, aug. 24, 2015 19:41


I changed firebird to #: passwd myfb at the command-line.

At su firebird I get:

su: failed to execute /bin/nologin: No such file or directory


not sure what I am doing wrong. I am using firebird 2.5.4 fedora xfce classic.

Please assist!

Addendum: with the root log-in I can select data from sample db. I
have SYSDBA account setup with a password and will do a new account once I get this
straightened out.
