How to remove the instance details permanently.

Technote (troubleshooting)


This article tells you how to remove the instance details that displays in onstat -g dis permanently


The onstat -g dis gets information from;

1. /INFORMIXTMP/.infxdirs  which contains all INFORMIXDIR directories on
this server.
2. $INFORMIXDIR/etc/.conf.<servername> e.g, .conf.ol_sdspri

Resolving the problem

If you would like to take out these unused instance from onstat -g dis,
you can remove the file (.conf.<servername>) from $INFORMIXDIR/etc.
