IBConsole gives error "Cannot attach to services manager data base file name (?|?w????) already given"

By: Borland Staff

Abstract: Problem specific to beta version of InterBase 6.0

Problem:
Using the IBConsole utility included with the 6.0 Windows Client Beta,
when I try to attach to my 6.0 Linux beta server I get the error message 

"Cannot attach to services manager
data base file name (?|?w????) already given"

or

"Cannot attach to services manager
data base file name (data base file name (data base file name (data base )
already given"

So what's wrong with my installation?


Solution:
The linux beta that was sent out does not have the new Services API
enabled, because it is a classic architecture port.  For the meantime
IBConsole can't be used to access a linux 6 beta server.  You can use
the command-line isql (I know but it works :)

We wanted to get the linux server out as soon as possible so that you
start playing and developing with it as soon as possible.  Because it is
the first 6.0 beta kit that is classic we didn't have time to implement
the Services API for it.
