Re: Informix error

Check the sqlhosts (in INFORMIXDIR )
and /etc/services file has the same name and entry for services.

also check the host IP is listed in /etc/hosts file

Re: Informix error

Have a look under /INFORMIXTMP and see what files are there (post the ls -latr output)

If you have no other instances try :


and then

oninit -v

This will re-create /INFORMIXTMP.

If you have other instances, you would need to post your DBSERVERNAME and DBSERVERALIAS along with the $INFORMIXDIR/etc/sqlhosts file.
Not enough Zappa makes you sad.

Re: Informix error

Thank you for your help, it was an .str file in the INFORMIXTMP dir.
