Use Firebird 2.5.1 utility gbak.exe to backup a Firebird database which has an old 2.0 format.
Use Firebird 2.5.1 utility gbak.exe to restore from the backup file made above.
The converted database does contain the new (2.1) Monitor tables (like MON$ATTACHMENTS, etc.)
HOWEVER, the same database does not contain a USERS (or RDB$USERS) table.
The USERS table is required by gsec.exe to add co-admins users to a custom database.
GSec reports the following if USERS does not exist.
"gsec -user sysdba -pass <pw> -database <database name/alias>"
gesec reports the following error: "invalid request BLR at offset 37 table USERS is not defined".
A workaround can be to create the table yourself in the database.
Ok, I hope this isue can be solved soon.
Thanks in advance,
Firebird 2.5 GBak Restore does not create a USERS or RDB$USERS table when restoring a 2.0-formatted database
