Hi Lucas,

I can not remember the documentation saying that you can't create a database
on a remote server. I think there are some limitations to creating secondary
database files on a remote server. I stand under correction.

Best Regards,

Is lnxsrvr the server where IB is running on?

If yes:
you can omit the machine name, since the database will be created by the
server which is running on this machine anyway and can only be created
on alocal drive/path from the server.

if not: it is impossible to create a database on network drive.

If this doesn't help try to delete the Connection and transaction
property of the script and re-add it.
