SDS_ENABLE - error rootchunk

Posted By: R Fo
Date: Wednesday, 9 April 2008, at 11:52 p.m.

Hi gurus,

I'm using VMWARE with RED HAT 4.4 in a notebook with 2 GB of RAM - Win XP Professional.

All of these VMW is builting with 512 MB of RAM.
I prepared a teste instance with IDS 11.10.UC2 and in one of the VMW I executed

the steps:
ontape -s -L 0 (TAPEDEV to disk in a "standard" or 'standalone' instance)
FTP of the file of level 0 backup to other VMW (in disk)

ontape -p (in the second VMW) and at the end:
defined the first as th primary instance
(onmode -d primary <instance secondary>)

defining the second VMW as the secondary instance - HDR
(onmode -d secondary <instance primary>)

FTP of level 0 backup to a third VMW (in disk)

ontape -p (in the third VMW) and at the end:
defined the first as th primary instance
(onmode -d add RSS <instance rss in the thirt VMW>)

defining the RSS instance in VMW as the RSS instance
(onmode -d RSS <instance primary>)

All of these steps were running Ok ...

After that, I bring offline all instances in order:
1-RSS instance
2-Secondary instance
3-Primary instance

After that, I tried to start all instances and at the first step in the "primary

instance", I got the following error:

[informix@vmware-48]$ oninit -v

[informix@vmware-48]$
[informix@vmware-48]$ onstat -

CHECKING THE ONLINE.LOG FILE, I FOUND (take look, I tried twice):

Has somebody got the same error???

I guess it's a Bug , but you know if there is a fix, already ?

All helps are welcome.

I restored all instances , and after I repeat all of the steps and the instances

were running ok until take offline... the error occurs again when try to start.

Thanks folks and best regards.
