Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 915 to 916
Informix Error Code -915 Cannot create an INFORMIX-SE database from a Dynamic Server or INFORMIX-OnLine client.
This CREATE DATABASE statement cannot be carried out because the database server on your workstation and the one in 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 determines which database server your application uses (for database servers prior to Version 6.0).
Informix Error Code -916 NFS mount table error.
The database server that you tried to access or a path that was specified in your DBPATH environment variable is located on an NFS-mounted file system. However, the database server or client application encountered an error accessing the NFS-mounted table file /etc/mtab (or, on some operating systems, /etc/mnttab). This condition probably occurred because your account does not have read permission for the file. Contact your system administrator, and have the file made readable to public.
This message appears with Version 6.0 and later.
Informix Error Code -916 Cannot open /etc/mtab.
The database server needs to check the system configuration file /etc/mtab to verify the location of a file system. However, it got an error when it tried to read that file, probably because your account does not have read permission for it. Contact your system administrator, and have the file made readable to public.
This message appears prior to Version 6.0.

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.
