Subject New Firebird 3.0.4 install can't attach, sysdba & password
Author Chris LeFebvre

>It sounds like your application is using a Firebird 2.5 fbclient (or at least a driver that does not support the new Srp authentication protocol).


>This could indicate that the installer only initializes and changes the SRP password, which means the legacy auth password is still set to the default of masterkey.


>This is very important to be aware of: users exist per authentication plugin, with a password per authentication plugin.


>Check MON$ATTACHMENTS column MON$AUTH_METHOD to see using which plugin you're using right now. You want to change the password of the other SYSDBA as well > (or maybe even delete it).

Hi Mark:


Thank you for making some sense of this problem for me, I’ll look into this and get back to you. I’ve been buried with assorted work lately and this is taking a back seat to some other things.
