 Informix Server 9.4 Installation Problem

I was trying to install the Informix Server 9.4 (downloaded from iiug site)
on to a Windows Xp machine .The server does start up by "starts ol_ibm" and
I can see the output of onstat . However on invoking dbaccess I get the
Error "-908    Attempt to connect to database server (servername) failed." .
Also, During Initialization the "sysmaster" database is not built .Digging
further I have found that the Local machine password should be same as the
informix password . As far as I know I do not have a password for my local
machine . How can I solve this issue ? . I tried logging in as user
"informix" and without a password I did not work .

My machine's  name is "IBM" and during previous installation of IDS ( IDS
PE)  it was called "DEFAULT" , I looked up the hosts files ,there is an
entry for localhost "127.0.0.1          DEFAULT" . do I need to change it to
"IBM" as that is the name of my machine now ?.

sqlhosts shows the entry   "turbo         1526/tcp" ,which I presume is
correct.

Somehow the initialization is not picking the correct values and fails to
create smi tables.

Anybody encountered similar problem ?. would appreciate any pointers .

Thanks

Navdeep

Run the setnet tool provided with Informix. The tool sets the
environment. Make sure your DB server and host name are correct.

 Informix Server 9.4 Installation Problem
I'm having a similar problem except the server won't start up at all.
I'm trying to upgrade from 9.21, which itself stopped working when I
upgraded my w2k to sp3 (it had been (mostly) OK before, even though
9.21 wasn't supposed to be supported on w2k). I did notice that the
environment variables weren't set in Control Panel, though setting
them didn't seem to make any difference. Neither did running setnet,
nor any of IBM's registry checking utilities.

I then tried to uninstall, but the uninstall program gets: "The
product version of the installation program is not the same as
installed version of the product or product is already uninstalled".

Has anyone seen any of this before?

Is there some document I can read that tells me exactly what settings
to check in my installation?

Failing that is there some way I can uninstall the whole thing without
reverting to 9.21? It's only a trial installation (of course) so there
are no chunks I'm interesting in keeping.

As I said, it all worked fine-ish with 9.21 with no sp installed.
