dbaccess debug message in INFORMIX

dbaccess debug message in INFORMIX


INFORMIX is installed in two HP systems: K-class (stand alone) and N-class (MCSG). Both running HP-UX 11.00.

In the K-class machine, my user tried the following in dbaccess:

SET DEBUG FILE to '/home/aps/stored_sp/tmp.log'

message returned: Debug file for trace opened

In the N-class machine, same user account but with the following message returned:

648: Cannot open DEBUG file for SPL routine trace.
1: Not owner

My DBA said the problem is due to the access rights for the user account aps is not correct but I have compared and verified that they are the same in both machines.

Any help or pointer is appreciated.

Re: dbaccess debug message in INFORMIX

Hi YC,
This error doesn't seem to be HPUX error "coz the message is not displayed as u said" and also if you have confirmed that "aps" is in same group and permissions of home directory is same then definately in Informix you might be defining the users to have access to dbaccess. Not all users can run dbaccess only who have been defined in informix (previledged users) can run dbaccess. So ask your DBA to have a look from informix side permissions for this user.

Re: dbaccess debug message in INFORMIX

Thanks Rajeev,

I fully agreed with you and that was what I'm thinking as well but not my DBA.

Could you advice how to check the access rights for a user in INFORMIX to run a stored procedure ?
