    ASLM error : "A shared memory area used by Apptrack licensing ..."


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



    In running aleph_startup on the al23app server, as seen in the $alephe_root/aleph_startup.log, it goes OK up through "starting oclc_server", but then "starting ncip_server", "starting sip2_server", and the "starting library batch queues" for all of the libraries gets the following error: 

    shm (index) missing 
    ASLM: A shared memory area used by Apptrack licensing has been corrupted 
    or deleted, and your system will need to be rebooted before this 
    application can run. 

    <end error messages>


    Rebooting the server corrected this problem.
