Setup Informix 12.10 PSM for dummy

Tagged Under : , , , , ,

Informix IDS 12.10 has replaced ISM with PSM (Primary Storage Manager). PSM is a simple storage manager for backup/restore operation with basic features (yet to reach the enterprise backup/restore solution like Netbackup, Data Protector, TSM ..). At this moment, PSM supports only DISK (filesystem) as media.

PSM is suitable for small environment and does not have 3rd party storage manager for backup.

Please find the following steps that I setup PSM 🙂

(1) Pre-requisite:
– Use informix userid
– prepare a filesystem with adequate size to hold onbar backup files
