IDS7.3 Initialization in Linux

IDS7.3 Initialization in Linux

Post by Tang Wai Hun » Fri, 21 Apr 2000 04:00:00

I have some problems in the initialization step of IDS, background and
details as follows:-

O/S   : RH6.0+CLE0.8 (Kernel 2.2.5)
memory: 64M Ram

Shared Memory Parameters(only some are listed up)

In the last step, after the message "Initializing, please wait ..." and then
i got
dupfd: fd 1048, max 1024
dupfd: fd 1047, max 1024
dupfd: fd 1046, max 1024
and then go to recovery...
Last year, maybe 1 yr ago, when i was using RH5.2, i can successfully
install and initialize with the same PC config. and the same IDS product.
I really don't know what's going on?! If someone meets the same/similar
problem before, please let me know how to solve.

Thanks in advance.

1. shared memory initialization fails (oninit -i) IDS7.3/SuSE8.1


I am trying hard to get a Dynamic Server 7.30 up on
SuSE Linux 8.1 / Kernel 2.4.18

What happens is:

Do you wish to continue (y/n)? y
oninit: Cannot open chunk '/data2/rootdbs.000'. errno = 27
oninit: Fatal error in shared memory initialization

The rootdbs is fine (chmod 660, chown informix.informix ...,
filled with 2GB out of /dev/zero).
In a first step I switched back to the low shm requirements
of onconfig.std. This doesn't change anything.

SHMBASE 0x10000000L
DBSERVERNAME    nbainf          # Name of default database server
DBSERVERALIASES nbainf_tcp              # List of alternate dbservernames

/etc/services has a line
nba_tcp   60000/tcp

and /opt/informix/etc/sqlhosts has two lines
nbainf  onipcshm  nba  nba
nbainf_tcp onsoctcp nba nba_tcp

All this did the job under SuSE6.4 . Any suggestions?
