    Unanswered: ARGH! Database wont start after upgrade!

    I upgraded both my operating system to AIX 5.2 and informix to 9.40 (doing both was requred by informix) and now my database will not start. The error message indiates that I should restart the previous (below) database and backup the logs, but I did back up the logs before the upgrades and followed the install guide to the letter! This is very frustrating, Informix's 'follow-the-sun' support is not answering the phone and to "start the previous server" I would have to reinstall AIX 4.3 and restore IDS 9.2 and thats utterly ridiculous considering the price of this software.

    Anyone ever see anything like this? Ig informix/IBM doesnt call in the next 20 minutes or so I am going to try and contact the IBM north american duty manager or maybe I will just stroke out and die. Have not decided...please help!

    To continue conversion it is necessary to restart prior
    server and backup logical logs.

    Unfortunately you have to bring up the instance under the old version, and backup all the logical logs before you can migrate.
