creating and connecting to second PVD db in firebird
« on: January 17, 2016, 06:00:01 pm »
I am using a firebird server to host my pvd database. The current db is now 18GB which I am finding it to be too large and risky. I would like to create a second pvd database and connect to that new DB now.

I have problem connecting to the second DB. I have create that database and named it pvd2016. However, I just am unable to connect to it. I keep getting error saying
"4: Your user name and password are not defined. Ask your database administrator to set up a Firebird login.
can't format message 13:98 -- message file E:\PVD\App\firebird.msg not found
Error Code: 152"

Anyone can help?

I found a way to do it. Here are the steps for those who wist to do the same thing.

1) create new pvd database file using File -> New... (create it in your local HDD).
2) Fill it up with a couple movies
3) Move the file to your server hosting firebird.
4) In firebird server, register new db and select this new PVD file.
5) Once done, you should be able to connect to this new file using Connect to Server... (<server IP>:/path/to/NEW.PVD)

Voila!!
