    I'm assuming that you are trying to bring up the instance the very first time?

    You need the command "oninit -i" to initialize the rootdbs.

    I'll also assume that the dbspace you are pointing to, '/wager/rootdbs', exists as either a cookied file or a raw device.

    Make sure that the path to the rootdbs is correct
    and the permisions are 660 and the user and group is informix:informix

    Cheers

    Are you using "cooked" dbspaces? or raw?

    if you do an 'ls -l /wager/rootdbs' - does the file exist?
