    re

    you must run command oninit -i for first time of seting up database ,
    if another time you run it , everything is gone !!!

    Hi
    You would not want to use the -i parameter in oninit if you're not intending to build the complete system from scratch !!!

    The -i parameter recreates the rootdbs for the instance, wiping out the whole system.

    to get an instance from off-line to quiecent mode, use oninit -s
    to get an instance up to ONLINE, use oninit without parameters.

    your system must be fully configured to do this.

    Are you creating this database for the first time or are you upgrading? It really makes a difference.

    According to the IBM Informix Dynamic Server 9.30.FC1 PRODUCT RELEASE (http://www-3.ibm.com/software/data/informix/pubs/library/notes/machnote/ids_solaris_9_30.txt)


    6. Optical

    The name of the IBM Informix shared library for Optical on Solaris is
    iosm09a.so. This library must be located /usr/lib/sparcv9/iosm09a.so
    (or must have a link provided in /usr/lib/sparcv9). Refer to the Guide
    to the Optical Subsystem for more information about enabling optical
    functionality.

    Check that you have the iosm09a.so library installed
