    "source aleph_start" hangs


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care



    "source aleph_start", which should take just a second or two, hangs (gives no response) for many seconds.

     "ps -ef |grep aleph_start" shows that hundreds of processes have been started.



    Do Ctrl-C to end the transaction.  Check for mistakes in the aleph_start file.

    In this particular case, an attempt had been made to move aleph_utf to a different location.  The old setenv for aleph_utf had been commented out using an "*" rather than the "#" which should have been used to indicate a comment.  

    After making this correction, "source aleph_start" worked properly.
