Re: unable to read $INFORMIXDIR (/usr/informix).2012-03-07T21:45:22Z in response to W4XE_Rakesh_KavetiYou need to change owner and group to informix
$ chown informix:informix /opt/IBM/informix/logdir/rootdbs
You also need to change permission, so only informix has access to the file
$ chmod 660 /opt/IBM/informix/logdir/rootdbs
