    AIK step 3.3: "copy_db.tar.gz does not exist in /scratch/ftp_from_exlibris"


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



    Step 3.3 "Install database" of the AIK (Aleph installation kit) 23 gives the following error: 

     Error: The file copy_db.tar.gz does not exist in /scratch/ftp_from_exlibris 

    The file copy_db.tar.gz is in the /exlibris/ftp_from_exlibris directory (*not* in the /scratch/ftp_from_exlibris directory, which doesn't exist).


    This message is coming from the following line in the ./AIK23/ikit_3_3 script:

    if [ ! -f $IKIT_FTP_DIR/$COPY_DB_SCRIPT.tar.gz ] ; then
            ERROR "The file $COPY_DB_SCRIPT.tar.gz does not exist in $IKIT_FTP_DIR" "$0"

    The $IKIT_FTP_DIR parameter is read from the /exlibris/ftp_from_exlibris/AIK23/param_bash.ini file.   It seems that it must have this line:


    Assuming so, correct it to this:
