    Unanswered: oninit -i fails to create sysmaster

    Hi,
    I have Installed Informix 9.40 on my HP-UX Server.
    When I initialized Informix Using
    $oninit -i
    It fails to create sysmaster, with error "Not Enough Free Disk Space"

    Though I am having more than 3 GB space free.

    Please Help Stuck with this problem..

    Thanks,
    Amit

    Hi,

    I'm pretty sure the sysmaster database is created in rootdbs & your rootdbs
    may not be big enough.

    Please check your $INFORMIXDIR/etc/onconfig file, what is the size of
    ROOTSIZE?

    I have no problems with ROOTSIZE = 120000, which is 30000 pages on an AIX box with 4k pages, and less that 2000 pages are in use.

    Unhappy Strange But Worked

    HI,
    It worked that way when I increased the size of rootdb to 120000, it worked.

    But I am still unable to understand why the same size of 30000 works on
    other machine and not on this one.

    Thanks,
    Amit

    Hi,

    It depends on several other parmeters, like size and number of the logical logs, size of the physical log and size of the online pages.

    It will be easier to see the problem if you send these parameters:

    PHYSIZE
    LOGSIZE
    LOGNUMBER

    and the last line of the output from onstat -b

    Hope it helps,

    You could also try building sysmaster once the server is up, notice your server came up without sysmaster around. Since sysmaster is a read-only view into existing memory your can re-create it no bad effects. Informix executes the $INFORMIXDIR/etc/sysmaster.sql script so run it through any sql execution tool.
