INdex creation crashing server after sco image

Date: Wednesday, 10 December 2003, at 12:39 p.m.

I am running IDS 7.31.UD5 on Unixware 7.1.3. Everything was fine until I applied the Maintenance pack 3 and the the nd and nics updates posted by SCO at which for some reason I am unabel to get to right now. After the install all seemed well until I tried to copy a live DB to a training DB using dbexport and dbimport. Dbexport works fine. When I try to do the import the process crashes shared memory while trying to create a second index on some of our larger tables. An example table is shown below. I am attaching the af. file as well. I can make the same crash happen, by just running the create index command against the table in DBaccess. Some how it seems I have buggered up shared memory with the SCO updates. Any ideas on how I can get the dbipotrs to work or why the index creation is crashing the instance? I tried reinstalling the IDS, but that did not help. THe crash happens the same on both of the following connection types:

DBSERVERNAME aspdb03 # Name of default database server
DBSERVERALIASES peitws03,ipcdb03 # List of alternate dbservernames
NETTYPE ipcshm,7,200,CPU # Configure poll thread(s) for nettype
NETTYPE tlitcp,7,200,NET # Configure poll thread(s) for nettype

Thanks Much
Tim Bragg.


UnixWare aspdb03 5 7.1.3 i386 x86at SCO UNIX_SVR5

Installed the following "recommended" updates from SCO


Table: First Index creates fine. Second Index crashed Shared Memory (See af file below)
I can create the table and load the data without the index and apply the first index fine. When I manually try to add the second index "kablooey". Same as when I try dbimport.

{ TABLE "informix".detdist row size = 66 number of columns = 13 index size = 79}
