In DBSource, driver name is “Informix”. DBUsername is the Informix user name, and DBAuth is the password for the Informix user.
The Perl DBD::Informix module is very mature and was developed in conjunction with Informix development staff. Building DBD::Informix requires that you have a working Informix installation and DBA access to a test database. We recommend that you carefully follow the procedures in the DBD::Informix README file, then build, test and install DBD::Informix before attempting to create and configure a Radiator database on Informix.
The create a new database, see goodies/ansiCreate.sql for more information.
You must ensure you have your INFORMIXDIR and INFORMIXSERVER environment variable set up specifying an operating Informix server. Also check that your $INFORMIXDIR/etc/sqlhosts file has correct information.
Configure your SQL clause like this:
DBSource    dbi:Informix:radius
DBUsername  user
DBAuth      password
