error initializing 11.70.FC9

Posted By: MARK COLLINS
Date: Friday, 15 December 2017, at 6:14 p.m.

IDS 11.70.FC9
HP-UX 11.31 PA-RISC

I did a standard installation (as root) of 11.70.FC9 in a separate directory on our test server. In the past, I have always set up a quick test instance anytime I install a new version, load the stores7 database, and run a few SQL statements to make sure everything looks OK before I try to upgrade any existing instances. This time, I'm having a problem doing that.

I copied onconfig.std to a new file, edited the new onconfig file to set up the test instance, and edited the sqlhosts file to create a shared memory connection to the new instance. I have set INFORMIXDIR, INFORMIXSERVER, INFORMIXSQLHOSTS, and ONCONFIG environment variables. Since this is a quick-and-dirty sanity check, I set it up to use cooked files, and I created the directory and file specified in ROOTPATH, and set the directory permissions to 770, file permissions to 660, owner informix:informix for both directory and file. ROOTSIZE is set to 400000, and the filesystem shows that it has 3071864 free Kb, so space shouldn't be an issue.

When I run 'oninit -i' to create this test instance, I get:

informix> oninit -i

This action will initialize IBM Informix Dynamic Server;
any existing IBM Informix Dynamic Server databases will NOT be accessible -
Do you wish to continue (y/n)? y
Cannot find message file. Check INFORMIXDIR and DBLANG.
WARNING: server initialization failed, or possibly timed out (if -w was used).
Check the message log, online.log, for errors.

As I said earlier, I have set INFORMIXDIR to point to the new installation directory. I have confirmed that there are *.iem files in $INFORMIXDIR/msg/en_us/0333. I have tried this with DBLANG unset and also with it set to $INFORMIXDIR/msg/en_us/0333.

Looking in the online.log file, I see:

17:26:00 IBM Informix Dynamic Server Started.
17:26:00 Segment locked: addr=c000000004000000, size=120606720

Fri Dec 15 17:26:00 2017

17:26:00 Event alarms enabled. ALARMPROG = '/test_ifmx/IDS11.70.FC9/etc/alarmprogram.sh'

There are no messages in the file specified by CONSOLE.

I see another file $INFORMIXDIR/tmp/startup.test_instance, which contains:

<PGI> 24461
Reading configuration file '/test_ifmx/IDS11.70.FC9/etc/onconfig.test_instance'...succeeded

Initializing Dictionary Cache and SPL Routine Cache...FAILED
<RET>185

The values for Dictionary Cache were not changed from the defaults in onconfig.std. I don't see a section in the onconfig related to SPL Routine Cache, but the SQL Statement Cache section also matches the defaults in onconfig.std. The only other "cache" I see in onconfig is the Sequence Cache, which also has not been changed.

I was going to include the full onconfig file for this test instance, but when I clicked Post Message, it said the message was too long. Please let me know if you want to see any specific entries from onconfig.

Any suggestions very much appreciated.
