Hi All

Thanks in advance.

From the command line.
If you login, does it not display that info ?
Otherwise, check the directory where application is driven from perhaps ?

Hope that helps a little.

Cheers,
Cam

when the client connects to the server, it would display a message stating

connected to server <version>

which client are you using ? dbaccess

or try this
if you are using dbaccess client

Code:
execute function se_release()

or you could find that from the installed directories
$INFORMIXDIR

this will not indicate patch versions installed

unix command to find the version of Informix database

Thank you very much guys.

I tried connecting to Informix database using dbaccess command.
Even though connection was successful, I could not figure out the version details in that

As suggested, I could find the version info from the installed directories
$INFORMIXDIR.


Thanks,
Suresh
