    Unanswered: URGENT: Cannot open primary chunk

    Hi,

    I shutdown the database server and the server it self.

    After rebooting the server, I tried to restart the database server.

    I had the following error.
    Cannot open Primary chunk. (Chunk number 1)
    Cannot open secondary chunk. (Chunk number 2)

    The server did start of course.

    I did try to do the oninit -v.

    The oninit command saw the chunk 1 and 2 without any problem.

    But the last message has been:
    fatal error: in shared memory initiallization

    Is anybody has seen that kind of problem?
    How can I restart our database?

    possible AIX solution

    Hi,

    If you're using IDS on an AIX box, have you executed the following command:

    /usr/sbin/mkdev -l aio <cr>

    This tripped me up once & I added it to the /etc/rc file so it's automatically run each time the box is bounced.

    Hi,
    Check the owner, group and permissions of the chunks. it should be informix:informix, 660.
    Also check that the path to the chunks is an absolute path.

    BTW, send what's in your online.log file about the error, please.

    Hope it helps,

    We are under Linux SuSE Enterprice 8 .

    The AIX solution is not applicable. ( I think )

    -------------------------------

    The owner:group permission was ok.
    informix:informix 660

    We didn't find any solution. We had to restore
