Informix Interview Questions and Answers


Somehow Informix fails to go online. Is there a way to view what oninit is doing?

Yes, you can start Informix in verbose mode:

oninit -v (this works on NT as well)

Informix will print everything that happens.

To close the verbose mode: start a second terminal session (UNIX) or command prompt (NT) and execute:

onmode -ky

N.B. Don't close your terminal session (UNIX) or command prompt (NT) while in verbose mode. This will take Informix offline immediately.
