Environment

Mac OS X - Client SDK 3.70.UC1

Resolving the problem

There are several methods to resolve this problem:

Method 1:

    1. Set the INFORMIXDIR environment variable.
      export INFORMIXDIR=/path/to/clientsdk/installation
    2. Change into the installation directory.
      cd $INFORMIXDIR

    3. Download and copy the attached script in $INFORMIXDIR. Run the script as user root.
      ./csdk_unixpostinstall.sh

      csdk_unixpostinstall.sh


Alternatively, you can follow these steps:

Method 2:
    1. On the affected machine, open a Terminal window.

    2. Become the super-user, by running the following command and entering your password, if prompted.
      sudo -s

    3. Set the INFORMIXDIR environment variable.
      export INFORMIXDIR=/path/to/clientsdk/installation

    4. Change into the installation directory.
      cd $INFORMIXDIR

    5. Run the following command to create the missing links.
      etc/installc etc/clientsdkfiles NOCHK BRAND UPGRADE INSTALLODS "AAA#B000000" NOZDIP

    The above steps will create the links for all the missing libraries, except for libinfxxa.dylib.

    If you need library libinfxxa.dylib, please run the following command as user root from $INFORMIXDIR:
        ln lib/esql/isxas09a.dylib lib/esql/libinfxxa.dylib


Please note, the above approach is valid for this release (3.70.UC1) only, and may not work in future releases of the product.
