I have a backup done on an IBM Informix database and need to extract the information contained in it. We have a customer with an old card access system that was running an Informix database. The system has since died and we are in the process of migrating to a new platform. The new system runs on MSSQL and the manufacturer no longer supports the old system.
Is there any way that I can mount this backup to get at the tables? I have downloaded the IBM Informix virtual appliance and have it running, but from what I can tell, in order to restore a database, the hardware and file structure need to be exactly the same, which it isn't.
It appears that I have a level 0 backup of the three databases.
