The value of INFORMIXSERVER is too long for a database server name. The maximum length for database server names depends on the database server. In Informix Dynamic Server 9.2 or 9.3, the maximum length is 128 characters. In other Informix database servers, the maximum length is 18 characters.
Set the INFORMIXSERVER environment variable to a database server name that does not exceed the maximum length and try again.
The database server that is mentioned in the current command resides on an NFS- or RFS-mounted file system. However, no entry exists with the NFS or RFS host for the dbservername that is listed in the sqlhosts file. Ask your Informix database admini-25559 DBPATH server server-name is not listed as a dbserver name in sqlhosts.
