  • 1.  Informix Windows issue: ERROR: Could not initialize the security subsystem.

    Posted Tue June 22, 2021 05:19 PM
    Windows 10 default installation + updates, IDS 14.10.FC6DE (tested with IE, WE, Ent, Exp)
    Figure #1

    My user Hrvoje is member of Administrators and Informix-Admin
    Registry has HLM\Software\Informix\Online\%INFORMIXSERVER%\Security including "IXDBSA Group" -> Informix-Admin
    When I start cmd for instance, all environment is loaded.
    But, when I execute "onstat -" I get
    ERROR: Could not initialize the security subsystem. Please ensure that this account has the necessary privileges and ensure INFORMIXSERVER value exists in the registry and environment.
    I have solution - figure #2

    I added domain\username (DESKTOP-U7UJQD9\Hrvoje) to HLM\Software\Informix\Online\%INFORMIXSERVER%\Security\Users\Usernames

    So is this bug, feature, documentation error, ... ?​
