If you've already posted comments, thank you. I've included the
replies I posted to you suggestions in this version of the post. Any
further suggestions would be appreciated.
4GL - 4.13.UD1
SE - 5.02
Operating System: SCO OpenServer 5 versions 5.0.4, 5.0.5, 5.0.6
We are experiencing a number of errors;
-211 Cannot read system catalog catalog-table
-242 Could not open database table table-name
-243 Could not position within a table table-name
-244 Could not do a physical-order read to fetch next row
-245 Could not position within a file via an index
-246 Could not do an indexed read to get the next row
-397 System catalog table-name corrupted
-710 Table table-name has been dropped, altered, or renamed
-750 Invalid distribution format found for table_name
on various sites.
Running bcheck as shown that such errors such as -245 don't always
a corrupt .idx file. The -750 is a false report because the table can
& selected from on another login.
We've tried exporting/importing the database and this has had mixed
results, with some systems being fixed and others not.
No other applications (outside informix) should be writing to the
database table files.
The hardware has been checked out by Hardware Engineers and found not
to have any faults.
The problem systems are also from a range of manufacturers.
I realise that we are using an old version of Informix, but has anyone
had any experience with
these sorts of issues.
