Pinned topic Connection Manager doesnt start successful

‏2014-05-24T09:51:15Z | connection manager

I configured a connectionmanager as a ha cluster. It doesnt connect successful.

following configuration:

2 informix 11.7 instances on rhel server srv-ids3. 1 Primary: alabpharma_ids3, 1 HDR: alabpharma_ids3_hdr

Connectionmanager on separate rhel server srv-ids1-conmgr.

I installed csdk 3.70.

following configs:

connectionmanger config-file

NAME ids3_cm
LOGFILE /home/informix/instances/ids3_cm/logs/cm.log

CLUSTER cluster_ids3

  SLA cm_oltp1_ids3 DBSERVERS=PRI




g_ids3 group - - c=1,e=alabpharma_ids3_hdr
alabpharma_ids3         onsoctcp        srv-ids3        sqlexec         g=g_ids3
alabpharma_ids3_hdr     onsoctcp        srv-ids3        ids3_hdr        g=g_ids3
cm_oltp1_ids3           onsoctcp        srv-ids1-conmgr cm_oltp1_ids3

environment variables:

export INFORMIXDIR=/opt/informix
export INFORMIXSQLHOSTS=$INFORMIXDIR/etc/sqlhosts.ids3_cm


sqlexec         9088/tcp                # IBM Informix SQL Interface
ids3_hdr        40101/tcp               # Infx ComPort for ids3_hdr
cm_oltp1_ids3   40110/tcp               # Infx Connectionmanger Port fuer ids3


I start the CM with the following command:


Output in log-file:

Why does it write "Cannnot find SQLHOST information for - " to the log?

The INFORMIXSQLHOSTS points to the correct sqlhosts file. If I make changes to the file I get different output in the log.

Any hints for me whats wrong?
