Subject RE: [firebird-support] reset sysdba password without loose existing users
Author Edward Mendez



What the person meant was that if a database is opened using a firebird server process, that process looks for a valid password for the sysdba user. This is the situation you are in now.  


But, If you take that Database and open it in embedded mode, meaning that it isn’t using the server process. The Embedded mode only looks for the user to exist. It doesn’t care about the password. Once you connect, you can then issue the appropriate command to change the password.
