How to restore critical administrative files with onbar utility?
It is already known to us that onbar backs up some critical administrative files during storage space backup. These critical files are as follows:
There may be a situation when you need to restore one of these files, for example: replace disks, restore to a second computer system (imported restore) etc. However, previously there was no easy way to restore these files from onbar backup. You need to depend on the Informix Technical Support to perform this operation.
Starting with Informix vesion 12.10.xC2, you can restore the critical files that you backed up with onbar utility. Onbar cold restore has an option now to restore these files or you can only restore these file without perform the storate space restore.
Use 'onbar -r -cf yes' to restore critical file during cold restore. Alternatively, you can use 'onbar -r -cf only' to extract critical files while Informix server is offline.

While your business is growing, you might face some performance issues, that weren't there when you started using DataStage, or even worse, DataStage, has never been as fast as you thought it would be.
As follows, I'm sharing with you some tips to check in general and specific environments, maybe it's matter of changing a parameter or maybe you have to install a product Fix, but remember, it's always useful to test in a controlled environment, stress your environment, and review if modifications helped or not.

What is IBM InfoSphere Guardium:
It is a product that can be a combination of dedicated hardware (appliance) and software or just software (a virtual appliance plus additional software) . It provides a solution for assuring the privacy and integrity of trusted information in your data center. It allows you to setup different and heterogeneous database systems to be audited by setting up the level of access that you want to monitor. It also offers the capability to run reports and send notifications under certain conditions.
And all this occur in real time, from inding and classifying sensitive data (Find and Classify), to asses vulnerabilities and auditing (Asses and Harden), to monitor and enforce access with real-time alert and notifications (Monitor and Enforce) as well as with reporting capabilities (Audit and Report) all of this with an automated centralized control.

Ok, it's the "Thoughts from Information Management Support" blog. Somehow "the Thunderdome" seemed more exciting...
On the other hand, this blog will benefit you in working with your IBM Information Management products (unlike a steel cage match to the death - yikes!).
In coming weeks, we'll deliver information to you regarding ways that we can help you, ways that you can help yourself, and hopefully in the process we'll help each other by getting to know each other better.
The Magical Mystery Tour is waiting to take you away!
(maybe that's an overstatement, too)
How about this: Join in, follow along, and we'll try and make the trip a good one!

Using Virtual IP (VIP) provides a more elegant solution for Automatic Client Reroute between HADR Primary and Standby servers. The client does not have to be aware of the IP address of the Primary or the Standby server and can connect to the database only via the VIP. In cases where there have to be changes made to the Primary and Standby IP address/hostname, the client is still able to connect to the Primary using the VIP. Here is a demo showing VIP in action

Re: Happy Thanksgiving!
I live in the United States of America, but this post is for all Information Management customers. I'm generally an equal-opportunity celebrator, and don't mind observing whatever holiday is occurring wherever it occurs!
On this day, however, I wish all people of all nations a Happy Thanksgiving!
(It probably won't mean as much outside of the US, although some of my Canadian colleagues revel in this upcoming 2-day break, referring to it as "take a break from Americans Day".)
Don't be shocked if this week you can't reach some of your regular US contacts - we'll mostly all be taking a break, generally eating or recovering from eating. Regardless, trust that there are resources in place to handle your critical support needs should they arise.
So, if you are taking a break - enjoy. If not - at least take a break from all of us!!!
