We have just upgraded from 2.0.0 to 2.0.1 and took the opportunity to switch to Classic Server as we have 30+ users most of whom will run more than one database application.

We have been running 2.0.0 classic on our development server for some time so were reasonably confident - both the development and live servers run Linux

As the users built up we rapidly got into a situation where connections were failing, with approx 28 active instances of the program.

Is there a way to identify the cause of the limitation - we didn't appear to get any errors in the Firebird log as I would have expected.

Look in /etc/xinetd.d/firebird and make sure your instances is set to UNLIMITED or whatever value you want... Also look in /etc/xinetd.conf and set the instances value there as well (we also up the cps setting for each server).
