Error description

  • You run the Informix installer on a machine where no Informix
    user exists and you want to keep it that way.
    So, during the installation routine, you specify that Informix
    should run using the 'Local SYSTEM account' but the installation
    routine creates user 'informix' and group 'Informix-Admin'
    nonetheless.
