please provide lots more detail, most likely "information-A.GDB" is an interbase database, so your description doesn't make sense

so you got an interbase database file from a customer, this has a good chance of being corrupt if it was provided like this. They would do better giving you a copy of a backup. A file copy of a database that is currently in use is often corrupt and can corrupt the original as well.
If the file is ok, you just need to place it on the same machine as interbase is installed (not a mapped drive or similiar)
if the problem is the very large version difference I would attempt to do a backup and restore.
I still don't understand what "trying to add this to my server " actually means, please give more detail

I think the problem is the enourmous difference in version, get the customer to take a backup and use the newer version to restore it, that may get round the problem
 
can you create a new database, prove that interbase is working ok

I can create new database.

I fixed it by installing older version of Borland interbase and adding the database to it.
