    ARC ETL Log: "Minimum date invalid in configuration file"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 16.02

    We have been noticing that some ETL logs on our ALEPH server are reporting the following error during the ETL process:

    Load: /exlibris/aleph/u16_3/duk50/tab/arc_conf_table.conf
    Minimum date invalid in configuration file
    Start time is 23:15:59
    End time is 23:15:59

    We have never adjusted the minimum date setting in our arc_conf_table.conf file and it is set to the same value that is provided in the "ARC 1.1 - ALEPH Configuration for ARC.pdf" guide:
    from year = 2004

    We do not know why this setting sometimes throws an error in our ETL log, and why sometimes it does not, nor do we know how to fix this (or if it's a problem to be concerned with).

    Do you have any information about this error and any suggestions on how to fix it?

    The message refers to a bad date in arc_conf_table.conf file , if the the events/opace events date given is later than the last date in the DB this mesage is generated.
    The message no longer appears in your latest ETL log in $alephe_scratch.
