    Unanswered: Shared Memory not initialized, but it isn't true!

    Hi!

    When I try to change the database status from online to quiescent (using onmode -uy) I get an error message:

    shared memory not initialized for INFORMIXSERVER 'ol_xxxx'

    It seems that database is not online, but it is. (All applications goes ok, and if I do "oninit -vy" I get: "database is still running").

    And If I also try to do a dbexport (dbexport databaseName -ss) I get the follow message:

    -908 - Attempt to connect to database server (ol_xxxx) failed.

    Although It seems the database is down, the db is running ok. Do you know what is wrong?

    Hello,

    Are you sure that your IFX env variables are pointing to the corrent Informix instance? Another way to check is use ps -fu informix and look for oninit processes (if there is only 1 instance running on the box).

    Yes, I'm sure. I've checked all environmet variables and all of them are right. The problem appears sometimes, one day works fine, but the next day I get this problem (!).
