Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 457 to 461


Informix Error Code -457 Database server terminated unexpectedly.
The database server process or thread with which your application program was working has terminated. The DBA might have shut the system down. The next most likely cause is an internal error. Look for operating-system messages that might give more information. If the error recurs, please note all circumstances and contact Informix Technical Support.
Check the ISAM error code that is returned with this error. If it is -129, the database server has not terminated but simply reached a limit on the number of concurrent user sessions (see the explanation of error -129).
Informix Error Code -458 Long transaction aborted.
The database server ran out of log space in which to record this transaction. A transaction that is not fully recorded cannot be rolled back. To preserve database integrity, the operating system ended the transaction and rolled it back automatically. All changes made since the start of the transaction have been removed. Terminate the application, and replan it so that it modifies fewer rows per transaction. Alternatively, contact the database server administrator to discuss increasing the number or the size of the logical logs. Be prepared to talk about the number of rows being updated or inserted and the size of each row.

Informix Error Code -459 The database server was shut down.
The database server instance that your application was using has been shut down by its operator. Your current transaction will be rolled back automatically when the database server starts up again. Rerun the application at that time.
Informix Error Code -460 Statement length exceeds maximum.
The statement text in this PREPARE, DECLARE, or EXECUTE IMMEDIATE statement is longer than the database server can handle. The actual limit differs with different implementations, but it is always generous, in most cases up to 32,000 characters. Review the program logic to ensure that an error has not caused it to present a string that is longer than intended (for example, by overlaying the null string terminator byte in memory). If the text has the intended length, revise the program to present fewer statements at a time.

Informix Error Code -461 File open error.
This statement transfers a value between a file and a BYTE or TEXT column, or the statement attempts to drop a database when a required file is not available. Because the locator structure field loc_loctype was set to LOCFNAME, the database server tried to open the file using the pathname in loc_fname and the flags in loc_oflags. An operating-system error was returned. Check the accompanying ISAM error code for more information and look for operating-system messages. Typical causes include lack of disk space, file permission problems, and limits on the number of open files.

What are Informix Error Messages?
All Informix messages returned by the Informix server are assigned an error code.

In general, each Informix error contains the following information:
• The Informix Error Code or Informix Error status
