dbimport error

dbimport error

dbimport error

I exported the informix database.
Then, I executed dbimport command on unix prompt as follows:
 dbimport dbname -d dbservername -i dbname.exp
It says...
"Cannot open sql script file"

Then i tried giving the name and path of the script file...as:
 dbimport dbname -d dbservername -i dbname.exp -f <path>/dbname.sql
It says...
"Can not write data to disk and tape at the same time"

Is there any problem with the command /arguments.
Pls reply..its urgent!

RE: dbimport error


The problem is you're giving the full path the sql file where you should be giving it to the parent directory where the export resides.

If database dbname.exp exists in /usr/tmp, change the above to:

dbimport dbname -d dbservername -i /usr/tmp

The -f switch is not needed if you follow the above.
