Can not perform Parallel Informix Whole System backup.
Informix Whole System backup will not use more than one backup device, even though the backup and restore environment is configured for parallel backup.
Cause of problem:
'rootdbs' can not be included in a parallel backup. This is a constraint imposed by the Onbar utility. When a Whole System backup is performed, Onbar will backup each dbspace in series because 'rootdbs' is included in a Whole System backup.
There is no solution or workaround. Only dbspace backups which do not include 'rootdbs' may be run in parallel. To enable parallel dbspace backups, set BAR_MAX_BACKUP in the server's 'onconfig' file to the desired number of parallel backups (and exclude 'rootdbs' from these jobs).
