    John:

    The onstat output does indeed tell you what "Edition" you are running. Here is my test instance which is running the Developer Edition:

    $ onstat -V
    IBM Informix Dynamic Server Version 14.10.FC4W1DE

    Note the "DE" at the end indicating Developer Edition. Others are:

    DE - Developer Edition
    IE - Innovator-C Edition
    WE - Workgroup Edition
    EE - Enterprise Edition
    AEE - Advanced Enterprise Edition

    For the Express Edition and Advanced Developer Editions I don't know the code character as I have never seen either Edition running. I would guess they are "XE" and "ADE" respectively, but that's a guess.

    I think that when there is no suffix on the version, that that is Enterprise Edition:

    IBM Informix Dynamic Server Version 12.10.FC6XC  <-- custom build, but no suffix
    IBM Informix Dynamic Server Version 14.10.FC3

    Agree with Mike - had a customer raise a PMR to confirm this with 14 and the new license key model

    Hello John,
    I think this page explains it pretty well, alas, it covers up to version 12.10:
