    ARC 1.1 ETL fails after installing rep change 1324

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    We are running ARC 1.1 and have installed v.18 rep change 1324. When we run the ARC ETL process (p_arc_01) through the batch queue, we get this error:

    ARC_VERSION = 2.0
    Now checking license permission
    There is NO valid ARC license
    **** Aborting ****

    Why is this happening and what can we do about it?

    Rep change 1324 added this line to the prof_library file for library, USM50:

    setenv ARC_VERSION 2.0

    When aleph_startup starts the batch queues, prof_library is sourced for each library before its queue is started. Since USM50 is started before ABC50, and ARC_VERSION isn't set in ABC50's prof_library, the setting for USM50 remained in effect when the ABC50 queue was started. Adding ARC_VERSION to aleph_start (as suggested by KB 8192-8903 for ARC 2.0 users) doesn't help, since the USM50 prof_library is sourced after aleph_start. Adding ARC_VERSION to ABC50's prof_library fixed the problem.

    Thanks to Timothy Prettyman of the University of Michigan for diagnosing and resolving this problem.
