    Unanswered: oninit: Fatal error in shared memory creation

    Hi forum

    When I try to start my informix server with the command 'oninit' I get the following error message:
    "oninit: Fatal error in shared memory creation"
    I would try to run the "onstat" command but it displays me this error:
    "shared memory not initialized for INFORMIXSERVER '<NULL>'"

    I don't know why I can't start the informix server. Where is the reason? Has anyone any tips or suggestions for me?!?


    Thx a lot!

    Hi,

    You need define INFORMIXDIR, INFORMIXSERVER, ONCONFIG and add this to PATH variable. Next run oninit -v. This in Unix/Linux.
    If problem persist, then delete from $INFORMIXDIR/etc/.infos*. next run oninit -v.
