    pls i have a problem with informix running on a cluster system. the informix starts and stop immediately and with the following error

    17:08:03 Checkpoint loguniq 9, logpos 0xd77018, timestamp: 2996261

    17:08:03 Maximum server connections 0
    17:08:03 On-Line Mode
    17:08:11 IBM Informix Dynamic Server Started.
    17:08:11 shmget: [EEXIST][17]: key 52574801: shared memory already exists
    17:08:11 mt_shm_init: can't create resident segment

    that caused the system to be switching from on node to another hence lacking stability.

    Hi kingley,

    Mabe the engine bad down. Please before startup the database, test if exist the file $INFORMIXDIR/etc/.infos.$INFORMIXSERVER.SERVERNUM, then remove this. Next test with ipcs -m if exist memory segment, of Informix, then remove this with ipcrm -m segment-ID or reboot the system.
    Next run oninit.
