    AIK - COBOL Installation

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

    Description:
    On our test server, when running the AIK as root to install COBOL I get the following:

    Install COBOL software as root user

    Enter the location of the Aleph software media files [/exlibris/ftp_from_exlibris] :
    INFO: Cobol 4 licence manager is running

    INFO: It is highly recommended to upgrade to Cobol 5

    INFO: this Upgrade can be done using the KIT but requires down-time for running applications currently installed

    INFO: In case you choose to upgrade, you will need to shut-down other applications, and re-link them to Cobol 5

    INFO: Please Confirm wether to upgrade[Y] or leave it as is[n]:

    After running this the first time and selecting yes everything seemed to install correctly. I then experienced issues in creating the test compile. In checking the logs and subsequently the /exlibris/aleph/a20_1/product/ directory I found that the cobol sym link was pointing at cobol4. After correcting this issue and a subsequent restarting of the server we now see the following in the AIK log

    ===============

    Resolution:
    We needed to make 2 changes:

    1) We changed the aleph user's home directory on the system to /exlibris/aleph

    2) In u20_1/alephe/aleph_start, we changed the PATH entry on line 266 to:
    setenv PATH "${PATH}:/opt/SUNWspro/prod/bin:/usr/X/bin"

    [Note that the preceding is for Solaris.]
