    “Z39.50 target error: [111] Too many databases specified.”

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21

    Problem Symptoms:
    When trying to search a z39.50 database, the following error message displays:

    ?€œZ39.50 target error: [111] Too many databases specified.?€?

    The name of the database in the ./alephe/tab/z39_gate/xxx.conf file has a space. Because of this, the target interprets the database name as two separate databases and issues the warning "Too many databases specified".

    Substitute %20 for the space in the database name.
