    I am getting the below error line while connecting to database.
    951: Incorrect password or user [email protected] is not known on the database server.
    Instead of [email protected], I get the error for [email protected] Could you advise what should be done here?

      IBM have a FAQ on this error, try and look here: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21588239

      Several symptoms can cause such behaviour:

      1. SQLHOSTS file mispelled entries;
      2. DBSERVERNAME or DBSERVERALIASES onconfig parameters have no related entries in the SQLHOSTS file;
      3. NIS or LDAP servers misconfiguration or maintenance;
      4. INFORMIXDIR filesystem and/or its subdirectories have wrong permissions or ownership;
      5. User is locked or expired;
      6. oninit binary is somehow damaged or have wrong permissions.
