IBM Informix Tech Support can not help me, He sed me only you can try to upgrate your versions of IDS to 9.3 FC7 from 9.3 FC1. And not give any warranty that This will be help. Probability 50/50
I wait this patch (I can't find in internet).
Last time I saw a message like this, I was trying to make a cold restore with the engine in quiescent or on-line mode. Obviously this was my mistake! Rapidly, I took the engine off-line and tried again succesfully.
