Statement failed, SQLCODE = -902 Your user name and password are not defined. Ask your database administrator to set up a Firebird login.

You'll get this error when you try to connect with invalid username or password.

If you are trying to connect to the database file directly (i.e. without the hostname: prefix) then you probably included the -user and -pass parameters, but they are not required.

If you just installed Firebird and the installer didn't ask for a password, you might have a hard time finding it. The default username is SYSDBA, which is the SYStem DataBase Administrator, and the default password is: masterkey.

Note: actually, the default password is 'masterke', as only the first 8 characters are significant.

On some installations on Linux, a random password is generated by the system during installation. You can find it in installation directory (defaults to /opt/firebird).
