My local Informix support is unavailable for the next 15 hours. I wonder if
any of you have seen this....
I've just installed Informix Dynamic Server (v7.31.UC5), and my $INFORMIXDIR
(and now $DBLANG) are set correctly (as far as I can tell):
This directory contains a goodly number of *.iem files:
$ ls -ald /usr/informix/msg
drwxr-xr-x 9 informix informix 2560 Feb 8 17:13 /usr/informix/msg
But when I try to start the server (ignoring the fact that I should really
be running oninit -i at this stage), I get the message 'Cannot find message
file. Check INFORMIXDIR and DBLANG.' By the way, 'finderr' works fine.
I am kind of baffled.
Here is the complete output from 'oninit -v':
$ oninit -v

Does anyone have any ideas? If not, I'll give UK support a call at 9am
