 After just installing Informix 9.21 on Solaris 8 which is running on an Ultra 2 with 512Mb of RAM, I try "oninit"
which returns the error message to the log:
 shmat[EMFILE][24]: out of shared memory segments, check system SHMSEG

 mnt_shm_init: can't create resident segment


 I've copied the onconfig file from an Ultra 10 with same OS and Infomix version to the Ultra 2 that gives the error message.
