    After exporting z66 prod to test: "password not verified on connectable hosts"

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

    I exported z66 and z67 from production and imported on test.

    Now I can't log in with GUI on test server using MASTER or other usernames. Error is "password not verified on connectable hosts."

    Procedure I used is:
    1. Prod
    Export z66 & z67 files:
    csh -f p_file_03 pwd50,z66
    csh -f p_file_03 pwd50,z67

    The output files "z66.seqaa" and "z67.seqaa" will be created in the
    /exlibris/aleph/u16_1/pwd50/files/ directory.

    2. FTP output files from prod to test: put them in the
    /exlibris/aleph/u16_1/pwd50/files/ directory.

    3. Test
    Import files to the password library:

    csh -f _file_04 pwd50,z66
    csh -f _file_04 pwd50,z67

    I found that the test pwd50 z66 is wrong. util f/4 shows this:

    01 z66_password
    02 z66_rec_key \
    03 user_name ................ALEPH
    02 z66_user_library ........... ADMI
    02 z66_user_password ..........N LXTSS
    02 z66_user_password_enc ...... 00 20

    It should have this:

    01 z66_password \
    02 z66_rec_key \
    03 user_name ................ALEPH
    02 z66_user_library ...........ADMIN
    02 z66_user_password ..........
    02 z66_user_password_enc ......LXTSS

    This indicates a problem in the p_file_03 extract. I saved the prod pwd50 ./files/z66.seqaa as z66.seqaa.old and re-ran p_file_03 as follows:

    csh -f $aleph_proc/p_file_03 PWD50,z66,go > & $alephe_scratch/pwd50_p_file_03.z66.js &

    That has resulted in a different (correct) z66.seqaa being created:

    PWD50-ALEPH>>ls -lrt *z66*

    -rw-rw-r-- 1 aleph aleph 2968 Oct 23 11:35 z66.seqaa.old
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 aleph aleph 36192 Oct 30 12:00 z66.seqaa

    I did the same for the z67, but the result in that case was a file exactly the same as the ...old.

    You should ftp this z66.seqaa over to Test and load it with p_file_04.

    I'm uncertain why your run for the z66 got an incorrect result. (Since the command was not structured to create a log, there is no log to look at to determine the problem.)

    I suggest that in the future when you run p_file_03 you either submit it from the GUI Services or use the csh command shown above.
