Migrating users from Firebird V2.1 to Firebird V2.5

Users upgrading to Firebird V2.5 want to know if they can just copy the security2.fdb file from previous versions.

In theory, copying the file should work, but Firebird V2.5 uses a new ODS (On Disk Structure) (11.2). Ideally you should do a backup/restore to 2.5 to update the ODS of security2.fdb, but unfortunately some problems still remain with regard to the use of the new role RDB$ADMIN (which gives SYSDBA rights to normal users). In this case, normal users who were granted RDB$ADMIN role, have problems to using the new SQL commands to CREATE/ALTER/DROP USER. Firebird V2.5.1 (due at the end of the year) will have a sql script that will fix this problem. So, the best way to move users to 2.5 at the moment, is to recreate them either via gsec or the new CREATE USER statement.
