I am using INFORMIX 6.0 on an RM600 with SINIX 5.42 and a RAID -
System, where the dbspaces are located. For the chunks i am using
symbolic links to each raw device. Since a disk failed and had to be
changed, one dbspace was always down. Because there is only one table
located on this dbspace, i wanted to drop this table and the dbspace.
First i changed the symbolic links. To get enough discspace, i dropped a
temporary dbspace with onmonitor. I also changed the onconfig parameter
DBSPACETEMP. But executing onstat -d, the two chunks where still listed,
but the dbspace not! Then i executed onmode -ky and started oninit. But
this always oninit fails with the messages.
Bad chunk: (...list of chunks)
Bad chunk: /dev/tempdbsp
Fatal error: Could not initialize shared memory segments.
I first asked the systemadministration, if the raid-system is down, but
it works fine.
Any ideas, what's going on here?????
