If you want to move the contents of one geodatabase to another database on the same Informix instance, you can create a second database, enable a geodatabase in it, and move your data. If you want to move the geodatabase to a new Informix instance, you can move the whole database using Informix tools such as backup and restore or the dbexport and dbimport utilities.
Move data to a new geodatabase on the same instance
Database and geodatabase names must be unique on the same Informix instance; therefore, if you want to move your data to a different geodatabase on the same instance, create a second database, enable a geodatabase in it, and move your existing data to the new geodatabase. Data can be moved in ArcGIS by copying and pasting, using the Export tool, using the Extract Data wizard, or using XML workspace documents.
Be aware that the user logged in when loading the data to the new geodatabase will own the data. If you want the data to have the same owner in the new geodatabase, have each user move his or her own data.
Move the Informix database
The easiest way to move a geodatabase stored in an Informix database management system and ensure you get all the necessary database objects transferred is to make a full backup of the database you want to transfer and restore it to your destination server. See the IBM Informix documentation for instructions on using these methods.
