    'Error unlocking record' when trying to save a doc record

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    Can't save doc records to server; they always get "Error unlocking record". Stopping/restarting the pc_server doesn't help.

    Error in clear_vir01

    1. dlib vir01
    2. util a/17/14 List Existing Indexes for a Table

    If z60_id is not listed as 'exists in Database', create the index:

    util a/17/2 for z60_id

    If this is not possible, do the following:
    - shutdown Aleph
    csh -f $alephe_root/aleph_shutdown
    - run clear_vir01 (util x/8. Clean Virtual Library (VIR01) in cold mode.
    - start Aleph
    csh -f $alephe_root/aleph_startup

    Then check, whether the z60_id is correctly built using util a/17/14 for z60.
