    Hi All,

    When i try to install IDS 9.3 on Sun solaris i get the foll. error
    /etc/brand : syntax error at line 1 : '(' unexpected, is this got to do with the hardware configuration or is it platform specific installation. Actually i am trying to install Intell ultra sparc and the actual software is for Sun OS Risk based systems. Where can i get a link to download IDS 9.3, pls. advice.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    I think that this problem is then shell. Please set /bin/sh or /bin/ksh.
    Then test permission and environment variables: User: Informix, INFORMIXDIR and PATH.

    /etc/brand is a binary!
    I can think of 2 possible problems:
    1, The binary brand is damaged!
    2, Wrong platform or OS version.
    I hope his helps
    bye
