Subject Creating a database via it's alias
Author Martijn Tonies

I got a customer report:

I have an alias configured on a remote server but this alias does not
represent existing database file.

So I use the alias in order to create the database but as result I get
error message which says that file named like alias does not exists.

for example:

aliasdb = /opt/firebird/data/aliasdb.fdb

I use "aliasdb" as file name in database create wizard and as result it
sasy that "//aliasdb" does not exists.

Do you have any idea if IBO supports this? Or will, for example,
the automatic file recognition thingy mess this up somehow?
