Firebird/InterBase – “unsupported on-disk structure for file …; found 32779.13, support .”

Posted by jpluimers on 2009/09/03

If you get this error message:

Sep 3, 2009 5:16:24 PM de.aderon.dl.adapter.DataAdapter getConnection
SEVERE: error DataAdapter getConnection : GDS Exception. 335544379. unsupported on-disk structure for file C:\\develop\\Db\\17_20090314.fdb; found 32779.13, support .
Reason: unsupported on-disk structure for file C:\\develop\\Db\\17_20090314.fdb; found 32779.13, support .

Most answers found by google mention that your ODS (on disk structure) is too new for your Firebird version.
But in this case, the portname was pointing to InterBase 2009 (relatively new) in stead of Firebird (2.1.1) also relatively new.

The solution was to fix the connection string:

  <key name="connection_uri"><value>jdbc:firebirdsql:\\develop\\Db\\17_20090314.fdb</value></key>
  <key name="connection_uri"><value>jdbc:firebirdsql:\\develop\\Db\\17_20090314.fdb</value></key>

Firebird 2.1.1 was running on port fbs_211 (decimal 30521), but the jdbc Firebird driver does not understand service names like fbs_211, only hard-coded TCP/IP ports like 30521.
InterBase 2009 was running onport 3050.

Camtasia Studio and Snagit available to MCTs FREE – Microsoft Certified Trainers Group: News Discussion | LinkedIn

Posted by jpluimers on 2009/09/03

If you are a Microsoft Certified Trainer like me, then you can get a free (as in gratis)  license key for Camtasia Studio and Snagit from TechSmith.

A quote from what Tjeerd Veninga wrote in this LinkedIn MCT group message:

From: Tjeerd Veninga TechSmith’s Camtasia Studio and Snagit are available to MCTs now FREE of charge. Simply go here and request an activation key.

A few MCT’s thought they didn’t receive their activation mail, but in fact it got in their SPAM box.

The activation mail will be sent from, in my case from the host,, so make sure your anti-SPAM measures allow for that.

Note you need new activation keys for each new release full version of Snagit/Camtasis.
