I cannot restore my database on another system. I get the following error.
Unable to write restored data to the database: could not fork server
Veritas Volume Manager 3.5
Informix IDS 7.31.UC2
Legator Networker 6.1.2
I can create the database and dbspaces and logs, and perform a backup and
restore on the system.
This also means that Informix can create chunks in the StorEdge disks.
But I cannot restore from an old backup.
I have checked the write permissions on Veritas, and the raw disks all have
informix owner and group with 0660 permission.
I can create a file system on the StorEdge and read and write to the file
I have checked my sqlhosts, /etc/services, /etc/system, my ixbar and oncfg
I even extracted the ixbar delete all the other backup entries on my ixbar
so that only the restore with the records
I want are in the ixbar file.
The Legato can mount and read the tape so all indexes are correct and it has
found the save set. It reads 955KB out of
27MB and the stops for a few minutes then the above error pops up and the
My hostname are the same.
The only difference seems to be that I have not connected to the LAN.
If anyone has encountered this problem, please reply. Needless to say, I'm
in deep ....
Thanks in advance.
