    I have a problem with starting IDS..

    ================================================== ==
    # oninit -v

    and on the on the online.log file few last lines are

    ================================================== ==
    18:54:57 Informix Dynamic Server 2000 Started.

    System error = 98.
    18:55:04 Attempting to bring listener thread down.

    18:55:04 Server stopped.
    +================================================= ==

    when I try to do
    onstat -command, I have a error on the terminal:
    shared memory not initialized for INFORMIXSERVER 'rh_shm'

    How can I initialize the shared memory?

    the sqlhosts file consist of the lines:

    ================================================== ==
    rh_soc onsoctcp redhat infx_soc
    rh_shm onipcshm redhat infx_shm
    rh20_soc onsoctcp infx_soc
    node_soc olsoctcp dbgate 1427
    gate2pub_soc onsoctcp 1427
    db1pub_soc onsoctcp 1427
    dblinux_soc onsoctcp infx_soc
    ol_pit olsoctcp 1526
    ================================================== ==

    and in the onconfig file are the variables:

    ================================================== ==
    # System Configuration

    SERVERNUM 1 # Unique id corresponding to a OnLine instance
    DBSERVERNAME rh_shm # Name of default database server
    DBSERVERALIASES rh_soc,rh20_soc # List of alternate dbservernames
    NETTYPE soctcp,1,100,NET # Configure poll thread(s) for nettype
    NETTYPE ipcshm,1,100,CPU # Configure poll thread(s) for nettype
    DEADLOCK_TIMEOUT 60 # Max time to wait of lock in distributed env.
    RESIDENT 0 # Forced residency flag (Yes = 1, No = 0)

    ================================================== ==

    help me,
    how can I start the server normally?

    And another question. As I understand, afther all of these, the server not started, but when I try to connect to the server 'rh_soc' from my windows machine from eSQL application (as I understand throught ODBC driver), the connection is OK and I can work with this databases. Why?
