    Create new instance

    Hi,

    This depends on your platform:
    - Windows -> Use instance manager to create config file, edit registry and add service

    - Unix:
    create new onconfig file (copy from onconfig.std)
    add connectivity lines to sqlhosts file
    createprepare disk/chunks
    set some parameters in your onconfig, at least
    - SERVERNUM (unique on your machine), DBSERVERNAME,
    ROOTPATH, ROOTSIZE
    set some enironment variables: same as existing env +
    INFORMIXSERVER (= DBSERVERNAME and 1st field of connectivity
    entry in sqlhosts)
    + ONCONFIG

    Check if everything is ok and new environment is set and give oninit -i command. Beware if settings point to your existing environment then this environment will be destroyed!!!

    Hope this helps,

    Rob Prop
