    Authority record update: "Server failed to execute request after 200 sec"; z105h

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

    We are having a problem with update of authority records..
    Here's the sequence of events:.
    --The user clicks the icon to save the record to the server..
    --The system responds with a list of relevant, nonfatal errors..
    --The user clicks over-ride..
    --After 200 seconds, the user receives the message "Server failed to execute request after 200 seconds.".
    The record is NOT rewritten to the screen as it would usually be for a successful update..
    A check using util/f/4 indicates that the record actually HAS been updated. However, waiting 200 second and getting an error message is really tiresome and does not inspire confidence..
    PC server logs, e.g., pc_server_6991.log, show no obvious problems.

    The Oracle alert log showed these errors:

    Errors in file /oracle/u01/app/oracle/admin/aleph3/udump/aleph3_ora_23287.trc:

    ORA-04098: trigger 'xxxnn.Z105H_TRIGGER' is invalid and failed re-validation.

    The $z105_library file_list had these lines:

    TAB z105h ....
    TRI z105h_trigger

    As described in PRB 3814, the Z105H table is an optional statistical table relevant only to [German] libraries using the z105 for central-local operation.

    The ./usr00/file_list and file_list's of the other distributed demo libraries do not contain these lines, but the $aleph_dev/aleph/tab/file_list.Z105 template does.

    We suggest that North American libraries *not* include these lines in their $z105_library file_list.

    The solution is to drop the table and trigger:

    SQL> drop table z105h;
    SQL> drop trigger z105h_trigger;

    and add these lines to the $z105_library $data_root/file_list:

    NA z105h
    NA z105h_trigger

    Thanks to Christina Meyer and the programmers at the University of Minnesota for their help in diagnosing and solving this problem.
