Problem: Message “unavailable database” when running gfix or gbak

Question :¬†Problem: Message “unavailable database” when running gfix or gbak

Whenever I try to run the interbase commands gfix or gbak in a command window against a database on a w2k3 server, I get the message “unavailable database”.

The database exists, Interbase is running and my user profile has full control permissions at root share, folder and file levels.

The command used is:

“C:Program FilesBorlandInterBasebingfix.exe” -v -full -user SYSDBA -pass dbfilename.gdb

Could anyone explain this and suggest a solution, please?
