Installation Problem

Question:
I am trying to install Informix on Windows NT Server. After installation, I get the following error (after restarting):

    Columns:        80    Keyboard rate:  31    Keyboard delay: 1    Code page:      1252Must be a DBSA to run this programINFORMIX-OnLine Version 7.23.TC14X -- On-Line -- Up 00:51:18 -- 9472 KbytesINFORMIX-OnLine Version 7.23.TC14X -- On-Line -- Up 00:51:28 -- 9472 KbytesMust be a DBSA to run this programINFORMIX-OnLine Version 7.23.TC14X -- On-Line -- Up 00:51:58 -- 9472 KbytesThere has been a database server initialization problem.Your logical logs have not been created.Wait for your system to finish bootingthen run the log.bat file from your Informixdirectory to complete the installation.

What is the problem?

Answer:
You have installed Informix with the “Role Separation” box checked. This is an enhanced security installation that splits functions between a database administrator and a security administrator. If you really need this level of security, you need to go into the manuals and complete the setup of all of the permissions and users needed for the high security installation.

Otherwise, reinstall the system and do not check the “role separation” box.
