i installed Informix Development edition successfully.i set $INFORMIXDIR to /opt/IBM/informix .i set $INFORMIXSQLHOSTS to /opt/IBM/informix/etc/sqlhosts .after when i run command ./oninit from bin folder its gave me error
Warning: could not access INFORMIXSQLHOSTS /opt/IBM/informix/etc/sqlhosts.
there is no file exist sqlhosts.i want to know what will be the content of sqlhosts file or it will be a simple blank file ??i installed Informix 11.70 on Ubuntu 13.10 32 bit .Please guideline .
the default value of INFORMIXSQLHOSTS is $INFORMIXDIR/etc/sqlhosts. If you want to use this file name, there is no need to specify this env variable
If the sqlhosts file is not existing, you can create it like this
Informix is easy to administrate, but thee is a minimum that must be done at the beginning. Don't forget what you have in your hands can handle BIG DATA with the MongoDB driver with sharded queries in heterogeneous servers, so it has to be somewhat longer to install than MS Access, mySql or similar toys :-)
