Upgrade the High-Performance Loader onpload database

When you upgrade to a new version of the database server, you must also upgrade the onpload database.

If you are upgrading from a version of the database server that is before Version 9.40, you must run a conversion script. For instructions for running this script, see your IBM® Informix® Migration Guide.

Starting with Version 9.40.xC3, the database server has a new version of the onpload database with longer column lengths. The onpload database now requires slightly more disk space than it did in previous versions. The following table shows the relationship between the database server version and the onpload database schema version.
Database server version Database version of onpload
Pre 7.3 0 or not available
7.31 1
9.2, 9.3, 9.40.xC1, 9.40.xC2 2
9.40.xC3 and later 3
