    Unhappy Unanswered: Cant connect to informix database

    hi All,

    When I try to connect to my informix database using an cli library I get an error saying

    [Informix][Informix ODBC Driver][Informix]Unspecified System Error = -25553.
    State Code: HY000

    I have used the same code with same startrup script on other machines and it works fine.

    I guess probably some envrionment variable needs to be set.

    I'd appreciate any suggestions, Thanks a lot

    Informix error message (from unix)

    -25553 Sqlhosts file not found or cannot be opened.

    The sqlhosts file is required to determine information to establish
    connection to a local or remote server. Create an sqlhosts file in the
    directory $INFORMIXDIR/etc according to the format that the manual for
    your database server product describes.
