Subject: RE: IDS Migration from AIX 4.3.3 to AIX 5.2

We fought this for over a month last year.  We went from some RS6000
running 2 500 mHZ cpu's to a P630 running 4 1 gig cpu's.  We went from
4.3.3 on the old boxes to 5.2 on the new machines and had many problem
trying to get Informix to behave.  IBM, after many weeks of trying and
failing, had us change from 64 bit kernel to a 32 bit kernel.  That
helped a lot, but still had problems with Informix.  They then made us
change from "shared memory" to tcp connections.  IBM said the problem
was that the "Regatta" boxes are too fast to use "shared memory".
Things settled down and we went into production.  But last year has been
horrible with our app.  We lost performance.  We run ton's of big stored
procedures and choke the boxes pretty often.  They finally closed all
our open ticket in favor of upgrading to the next relase and see how it
goes.  We're going to upgrade next month.  I forgot the next version
number.  The gut feel is that Informix ran better under 4.3 with the 2
500 mHZ cpu's.

Just one issue ... there isn't a 7.31.FD7 for AIX 5.1.

There is a 7.31.FD6 for AIX 5.1, but no 7.31.FD7 for AIX 7.31.FD7.

I think you would have to start looking at 9.40.FC?

IDS Migration from AIX 4.3.3 to AIX 5.2
We are going to be upgrading the OS on our 500gig Informix system sometime this calendar year from AIX 4.3.3 to AIX 5.2. We will be using IDS 7.31-UD7 in developement and IDS 7.31-FD7 in production. Could someone who has made this OS upgrade let me know what issues and risks they encountered. Could someone let me know how similar the user spaces are between the two OSes. We have numerous apps that issue OS commands, capture and pares the results. I'm curous what kind of an effort its going to require to modify these parsing routines for the new OS.

Moving/Migrating /etc files from AIX 4.3.3 to AIX 5.3.0
We are migrating our administrative system from an F50 running AIX 4.3.3 to a p5-550 running AIX 5.3.0. When comparing the base 'passwd', 'group', etc., I've noticed that the AIX 5.3.0 base files for 'passwd', 'group', etc. files have ids which are assigned to different users than the ids on the 4.3.3 machine. What is the proper method to 'migrate' the 'passwd', 'group', etc. from 4.3.3 to 5.3.0? For example: Should I leave the ids alone on the 5.3 'passwd', 'group', etc, and somehow assign new ids to the conflicti...

lex problem migrating from AIX 4.3.3 to AIX 5.3 (NCH was 256 is 4096)
I am migrating a large application from AIX 4.3.3 to AIX 5.3 and have hit a problem with lex. In AIX 4.3.3 lex compiles many files sucessfully, but in AIX 5.3 it does not. The problem is that the number of transitions has increased markedly for the same lex source file. this seems to be caused by the "#define NCH 4096" on line 6 of the generated C file. (The value was 256 under AIX 4.3.3.) There is a corresponding increase in generated tables in the C file (with 4096 lines of table data as opposed to 256 previously). If I run AIX 5.3 lex against my lex source file I get the follo...

We are running AIX 5.3 (64 bit kernal). We develop using the IBM XL C compiler version 7. For one site we need to run on AIX 4.3.3. Can we compile on AIX 5.3 and run on AIX 4.3.3?

No. The general rule is that you compile and build on the earliest level you need to support. Is it not possible to set compiler options to generate code that will run on AIX 4.3.3?
