Error description

  • On Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition and
    Informix version 12.10.FC14 when trying to start the engine
    with oninit, syncsqlhosts.exe throws a warning message:
    
    Verbose output complete: mode = 5
    C:\PROGRA~1\IBMINF~1\bin\syncsqlhosts.exe [-source
    <sqlhostvalue>] [-target <sqlhostvalue>] [-servers {serverlist
    }]
    
    if source or target is not specified it defaults to local
    informixsqlhosts registery node
    sqlhostvalue is either \\machine name or an sqlhosts file.
    serverlist is a space seperated list of informix server entries
    that are copyed from source to target
    
    The terminal won't be released until CTRL+C when the engine
    shuts down. The workaround is to disabled the Scheduler API
    sync_registry
    task:
    database sysadmin;
    update ph_task set tk_enable='f' where tk_name='sync_registry';
