Informix 8, xps 8.5 DBMS Table Type and Index type

Is there anyone using Informix 8.5 xps that have an updated
.xdb file you would like to share?

For example; how to work with table types (raw, operational,
standard, static) when generating and especially reverse

and also Index types.

Many thanks in advance,

Sorry, but I don't have that XDB.
However, adding the table type isn't a huge effort.
First, clone the current Informix V8 XDB file, naming the new one 8.5xps 
or something.
Edit the clone.
Right-click on Profile/Shared, and add new Extended Attribute Type.
Name the new attribute type as "XPSTableTypes".
Add the 4 values "RAW", "OPERATIONAL", etc. in your preferred order, and 
select a default.

Right-click on Profile, and add Table.
Right-click on Table, and add a new Extended Attribute.
Name the new attribute "TableType"
Select the data type as "XPSTableTypes".

Now you will be able to assign the table types to your tables.

Next we need to let it generate the new table types.
Expand Script/Objects/Table.
Select the Create item.
The first line of the Value reads:
    create table [%QUALIFIER%]%TABLE% (
Between "create" and "table", insert this:
    [ %TableType%]
The line now reads:
    create[ %TableType%] table [%QUALIFIER%]%TABLE% (

That will generate the correct DDL.

Now, you want to be able to reverse engineer the table type.  I'm not 
sure what the query is to retrieve that from the system catalog, but you 
would want to edit the Script/Objects/Table value for SqlListQuery.  It 
is currently empty.  I'm not sure why.  If you look at other DBMS 
entries, like Sybase ASA9, you will see others that include an extended 
attribute in the query.  Let me know the query and I'll see what I can 
do to finish this out.

It may seem like a lot, but it is pretty cool that you can customize the 
support for each DBMS like this.

it works.

Haven't got the select for reverse engineering of this in
the informix system tables yet.

I also managed to add indextype gk as follows:
a. Added Script_>Objects			added IndexType  with gk
b. Added Profile->Index->Extended Attributes	added
ExtGKSelect with datatype text
c. Changed Script_>Objects->Table->Create		create
create  [%UNIQUE%] [%CLUSTER%] index [%QUALIFIER%]%INDEX% on
create [%INDEXTYPE%] [%UNIQUE%] [%CLUSTER%] index
(%CIDXLIST% [%ExtGKSelect%])[%OPTIONS%]
d. To use in model:
On Index for the table select the gk index type.
Write Select statement  in Extended Atributes ExtGKSelect.
For example:
create gk index ordersgender on SALES (select as key
c.gender from SALES s, CUSTOMER c where s.cid = c.cid)

I hope this is the right way to add it.

8.8.4 vs 8.8.5
Should I or should I not? I have 24 NW65sp8 Edir 8.8.4 in my small school system. I see not only that 8.8.5 is out but also a FTF1 sp that looks to fix some serious issues. My question is this.

Upgrade 8.8.4 to 8.8.5 NW v6.5 SP7

Upgrade NW6.5 SP8 from eDir to 8.8.5
Hi, We currently have 10 NetWare 6.5 SP8 servers with eDirectory 4 with Full Read/Write Replica's and 6 with Filtered Replicas. We're planning to replace all the NetWare servers with Sles/OES2 next year, but in the meantime I'd like to upgrade them to eDirectory 8.8.5. I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on the best way to achieve this on NetWare and can we mix versions? Is there a straight forward upgrade path on netware or should I just skip straight to migrating replica servers to Linux starting with the master? Thanks! Peter ...

eDir Netware 6.5 sp6 to 8.8.5 ??
I have several Netware 6.5 sp6 servers. When I do a version at the Console the result is Novell Open Enterprise Server Netware 6.5. I'll assume this is OES1 as we have not upgraded the Netware servers to OES2. The eDir 8.8.5 documentation lists the prerequistes as OES2 and OES2sp1 as well as Netware 6.5 sp7 or higher. Do I have to upgrade these servers to OES2 before I can upgrade to eDir 8.8.5? I would like to first patch these servers to sp8 and then upgrade eDirectory to 8.8.5. Will this be OK? All the documentation I come across specifies OES2 only and no...

Novell 6.5 SP7 and eDir 8.8.8 and eDir 8.7.3
Hello! I have a server that I'm planning to migrate onto new hardware. I built a Migration server on the new hardware with Netware 6.5 SP7 and upgraded to eDir 8.8.2. Unfortunately I didn't notice at the time I had an old copy of the migration document and when I updated it I found there was a warning that both Machines had to be eDir 8.8.2 and Netware 6.5SP7 if you wanted to migrate to a machine with dDir 8.8.2. The machine I am migrating from is Netware 6.0. Is it ok to just uninstall eDir 8.8.2 and then install eDir 8.7.3 on the server or do I need to completely rebui...
