We have a very old informix database version. Everything is command line.
How to add a user to the admin group?
When we export a database whose tables data are stored in a tablespace say xyz and when we import the same export file to another database should the tablespace be present.

    Possibly these are the commands:

    dbexport name_of_database -o output_dir
    dbimport name_of_database -i input_dir

    Normaly the tablespace should exist.
