Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 908 to 910
Informix Error Code -908 Attempt to connect to database server (servername) failed.
The program or application is trying to access another database server but has failed. Note the server name in the current statement.
The desired database server is unavailable, or the network is down or is congested. Ask your DBA and system administrator to verify that the server and network are operational. If the network is congested, use the environment variables INFORMIXCONTIME and INFORMIXCONRETRY to tune connection timing. For information on setting these environment variables, see the Informix Guide to SQL: Reference.
This message appears in Version 6.0 and later versions.
Informix Error Code -909 Invalid database name format.
This statement seems to refer to a database from another database server, but the database name, site name, server name, or punctuation is incorrect. Review the statement, and check that all identifiers start with a letter (or underscore, for Version 6.0 and later) and contain only letters, digits, and underscores, and that the reference is in the form dbname@sitename or //sitename/dbname (before Version 6.0) or dbname@servername or //servername/dbname (Version 6.0 and later). If you are using INFORMIX-OnLine for NetWare, check that you provided the remote database name in one of the forms that is explained in the product manual.
Informix Error Code -910 Cannot create a Dynamic Server or INFORMIX-OnLine database from an INFORMIX-SE client.
This CREATE DATABASE statement cannot be carried out because the database server on your workstation and the one on the other computer system are different products: one is INFORMIX-SE and the other is another Informix database server. You can manipulate databases in this configuration, but you cannot create one. To create a database, either start the same product in both locations, or run this statement locally on the other computer system. The SQLEXEC environment variable (for database servers before Version 6.0) determines which database server your application uses.

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
• The message text. This text is usually returned with the Error code. Some messages employ word substitution, where the word substituted represents the system-replacement of a term more specific to the occurrence.
• An explanation of how the error may have occurred.
