    Exclamation Unanswered: Help Bad Primary Chunk

    First of all excuse me for my english ....
    When I started informix with the command oninit. I get a message 'Bad Primary Chunk /usr/informix/db/onedbs'. The chunk onedbs is in this directory with permissions 660 and informix informix own/grp.
    Thank you

    The chunk seems to be unusable.

    Make sure that your can read from this chunk by
    executing the following command as user
    'informix':

    dd if=usr/informix/db/onedbs of=/dev/null

    If this works without problems, you probably need
    to restore your databaseserver because the rootdbs
    has been corrupted.

    Check also your 'online.log' file. If this is a production
    server I would recommend to open case with
    IFMX tech support.

    HTH.
    Best regards
