Informix Error

Hi,
There seems to be a strange problem with
my informix.

Whatever the way I start Informix
either
#oninit -iy
or
#oninit
My sysmaster is not getting created.

Please find attached the output of onstat -m
And there is no issue with the space on the
system.

#df -k
Tells me that I am having 50% of disk space
free

Please help me
Thanks,
Amit

Re: Informix Error

looks like we need your $ONCONFIG too.

Where does ROOTPATH in $ONCONFIG point to ?

do a bdf on the logical volume ROOTPATH is pointing to.

Re: Informix Error

Hi,
UNDER THE ONCONFIG Files
ROOTPATH /dev/online_root
Which is a softlinke to
/data1/genevadb/genevarootdbs

Here is the output of bdf

Re: Informix Error

Hi

See
http://erde.fbe.fh-weingarten.de/plewnia/docu/sysmaster.html

{ Raw Disk }
create table sysrawdsk { Internal Use Only }
(
pagenum integer, { physical page address }
offset smallint, { bytes into page }
loc char(14), { location representation }
hexdata char(40), { 16 bytes hexdumped from offset}
ascdata char(16) { 16 bytes ascii-dumped }
);
create unique index sysrawdskidx on sysrawdsk (pagenum, offset);
revoke all on sysrawdsk from public;



bdf does not show raw disks

You seem to run out of raw disk space

Ask informix

Informix uses raw disk devices to control how data is stored on the disks

Re: Informix Error

Hi,
How to check raw disk space on HP-UX

For testing I did installation on another
machine with same h/w config
On that server,
#oninit -i
Is able to create sysmaster,sysutil but
fails to create "sysuser".

What could be the reason..

Please help me with this.

Thanks,
Amit

Re: Informix Error

Hi Amit,

Check the root disk chunk size in the onconfig file of informix . May be rootdbs allocated might be full.

Thanks

Re: Informix Error

Use the onstat -d command to check the available free space in the rootdbs (typically chunk 1) and see what the free space is.
