Informix - Problem description

Problem IT29597 Status: Closed

SHUTTING DOWN AN INSTANCE USING INFORMIXSERVER DIFFERENT FROM THE ONE USED
FOR STARTUP WILL LEAVE SHARED MEMORY SEGMENTS BEHIND

product:
INFORMIX SERVER / 5725A3900 / C10 - IDS 12.10
Problem description:
With a DBSERVERNAME and at least one DBSERVERALIASES entry, you
can use all of them, in INFORMIXSERVER env var, for bringing up
or shutting down your instance.

When shutting down the instance (onmode -k) using one of them
that's never been used for starting this instance, the
instance's shared memory segments would be left intact and in
the way for restarting the instance ("shmget: [EEXIST][17]: key
: shared memory already exists").  onmode's return code
in such case would be 193.
