Hi

 

Description:

AIX 6.1 system WPAR 6100-09-04-1441. Database Informix 11.50FC8

 

Errors on installation:

Permission denied. File system /opt reports no available free space because it is a read-only jfs2 file system.

WARNING: /opt partition has insufficient space to install the items selected. 587.7 MB additional space would be needed to install the selected items.

 

/opt FS is not read-only.

# mkdir -p /opt/IBM/informix

# ls -la /opt/IBM

# drwxr-xr-x   2 informix informix       256 Jul 21 10:20 informix

 

Solution:

1. According to IBM it is IDS installer issue and fixed in latest patch of current Informix version. Latest patch for 11.50 is

11.50FC9W3, which can be downloaded from IBM Fix Central site.

 

2. To avoid other WPAR issues lets install it in silent mode:

# ./installserver -silent -javahome none -acceptlicense=yes -tempdir /opt/tmp

 

After installation add next to informix user environment (sh):

INFORMIXSERVER=demo_on
INFORMIXDIR="/opt/IBM/informix"
ONCONFIG=onconfig.std
INFORMIXSQLHOSTS="/opt/IBM/informix/etc/sqlhosts.std"
PATH=${INFORMIXDIR}/bin:${PATH}
export INFORMIXSERVER INFORMIXDIR ONCONFIG INFORMIXSQLHOSTS PATH

Be sure that:

/opt/IBM/informix/etc/sqlhosts.std

/opt/IBM/informix/etc/onconfig.std

 

Configured with right server name and settings.

 

3. Start server (as informix user):

oninit -ivy (first time)

 

I got next errors on first start:

oninit: Fatal error in shared memory initialization
WARNING: server initialization failed, or possibly timed out (if -w was used).

online.log:

02:09:16  Warning: stat() failed for chunk file /home/IBM/informix/tmp/demo_on.rootdbs
02:09:16  Cannot Open Primary Chunk '/home/IBM/informix/tmp/demo_on.rootdbs', errno = 2
02:09:16  oninit: Fatal error in shared memory initialization

Solution:

$ touch /home/IBM/informix/tmp/demo_on.rootdbs

$ chmod 660 /home/IBM/informix/tmp/demo_on.rootdbs

$ oninit -ivy   (now works fine).

 

Thank you.
