No - unless you revert to a version of Firebird that doesn't enforce the rules. They are enforced in Fb 1.5.6, 2.0.5 and 2.1.3 - and in 2.5, of course.

You should be deploying databases with a non-SYSDBA user as Owner. The Owner user can backup and restore databases. Thomas Steinmaurer has a tool for migrating the ownership of a database..."DbOwnerMigrator" or something along those lines - - I think it is free.
