Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 917 to 919
Informix Error Code -917 Must close current database before using a new database.
This statement (DATABASE or CREATE DATABASE) requires you to open a different database. However, the current database is located on another computer system, so you must explicitly close it with the CLOSE DATABASE statement. (When you work with databases located on the same computer as your application program, the database server will close the current database for you automatically.) If a program receives this error, review the program logic, and check that it executes a CLOSE DATABASE statement before a [CREATE] DATABASE statement. This solution will work in all situations, networked or local.
Informix Error Code -918 Unexpected data received from another database server.
This internal error reflects a failure in communication between your application and the INFORMIX-STAR or INFORMIX-NET software at another site. Restart your application. If the problem recurs, ask your system administrator to run network diagnostics. If the error recurs, please note all circumstances and contact Informix Technical Support.
Informix Error Code -919 System error. Wrong number of arguments to database server process.
This internal error reflects a failure in communication between your application, INFORMIX-STAR or INFORMIX-NET software, and the database server on the other computer system. Check that all three of these software components are at compatible software levels. (For versions prior to Version 6.0, see the appropriate INFORMIX-NET/INFORMIX-STAR Installation and Configuration Guide for a compatibility chart). Recompile and relink your application program if necessary. If the problem recurs, please note all circumstances and contact Informix Technical Support.
