Using GSEC from the command line on Windows naming user and password

By: Borland Staff

Abstract: InterBase prior to 5.x didn't allow GSEC to specify username and password on command line

Problem:
GSEC.exe will not accept switches for naming [user / password] information

Solution:
 There are two options to address this situation:

[1] Use server manager to add/delete/modify user information.

[2] If using from the command line is the only option, you must create the environment
     variables for the DOS session or the user/system so that when a DOS session is
     started the variables are created by default.

     ISC_USER and ISC_PASSWORD must be set.
