IDS 11.50 Crashing

Posted By: VIKAS HIVARKAR
Date: Thursday, 2 July 2009, at 4:40 a.m.

Hi,

IDS 11.50.FC4 on Solaris 10

We migrated out test instance from IDS 11.10.FC3 to 11.50.FC4.
After changing the softlinks and copying the onconfig and sqlhosts the new instance was started simply with "oninit -v".

I could not see any error while the conversion process and the end lines were
"Conversion Completed Successfully"
"On-Line Mode"

I did a level 0 backup, rebooted the instance two time and every thing was looking good untill aftersome time, I found that the instance went down.

The online.log shows

The effords to take instance up (oninit) failed with error:

14:57:12 IBM Informix Dynamic Server Version 11.50.FC4 Software Serial Number AAA#B000000
14:57:12 Logical Log File not found.
14:57:12 oninit: Fatal error in shared memory initialization

14:57:12 IBM Informix Dynamic Server Stopped.

14:57:12 mt_shm_remove: WARNING: may not have removed all/correct segments

I checked for "ipcs |grep informix" and did "onmode -ky" 2 times but of no use.
The logfile and other file permissions were intact and nothing seems to be changed externally.

I restored the instance with the level 0 backup and took it online and runned UPDATE STATISTICS on every database, again every thing looked good untill today morning when i started another leve 0 backup which failed and instance crashed.

The online.log now shows

09:56:09 Level 0 Archive started on rootdbs, physdbs, logdbs, datadbs2, datadbs8
