We're looking at implementing a third-party application that uses a Firebird database.  My manager wants to put Firebird on our Microsoft SQL Server so we don't have to add yet another server for what would be a small database with only five users.  Will it work?  Are there any known problems?

there is no reason it should fail to work. However how well it works depends upon the server spec, the usage of both databases etc.

My reccomendation is to try it, it's easy to install firebird elsewhere if there is a problem.

NB I reccomend installing firebird 1.5.3, if you do decide on a seperate server linux/unix usually does the job better for the same hardware.

I think they get with each other well. I am a developer with Firebird, MS SQL, Oracle, MySQL. I installed them all to my host and they still work well.
