Hi experts, We are running an application using Firebird 2.1 Server on Windows 2003 server Standard Edition SP2, but find that daily it runs multiple instances of itself through out the day preventing any users coming into their shift to execute the application.

In task manager fbserver.exe is running more than once and we have to kill off the smaller process so that users can login or report against the database. (see attached image)
