Hopefully someone with HP-UX and/or Informix experience is out there because we haven't found anyone to help us yet. Thankfully our backup system is accessible still.

We moved out HP-UX/Informix/SAP system to a new data center and new storage. One thing we had to deal with was recreating the multipath config, but once we found the proper commands that was resolved easily.

When we try to start informix we get this:
12:45:39 IBM Informix Dynamic Server Started.
12:45:40 The number of configured CPU poll threads exceeds 'NUMCPUVPS'.
NETTYPE 'serverlztcp' poll threads started on NET VPs.

I have tracked down the port that it should be using (from /etc/services) and using netstat -an I can see that it is NOT being used.

One thing I have found is that I cannot ping, although lo0 is up. Not sure if informix is trying to bind to all available addresses or only one?

I'm not an informix expert, but so far everything seems to be checking out with what people with this error are told to look for.

I've checked sqlhosts and services and they appear to match up correctly.
/etc/resolve.conf looks good and localhost is resolved from the hosts file ok.
There is no firewall enabled as far as I can tell.
We have rebooted the system.
I can SSH to the system and network connectivity is good aside from

There are a few databases and I've commented out as much as I could from sqlhosts, but I don't think it's a conflict.

Anyone have any suggestions?
Should I be able to ping

Any help is greatly appreciated.
