    Batch queue not running; util c/2 fails to start it

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph

    Problem Symptoms:
    I find (util c/1) that the abc01 batch queue is not running. I did util c/2 to start it, but util c/1 shows that it did not start.

    Process hanging


    > ps -ef | grep lib_batch | grep ABC01

    to confirm that it is not running.

    If not, there might be a problem caused by problematic files in $data_files-directory of library ABC01.

    To solve this do this:
    >>dlib abc01
    >>mv que_batch que_batch.old
    >>mv lib_batch_log lib_batch_log.old
    >>mv batch_log batch_log.old
    >>touch que_batch
    >>touch batch_log
    >>touch lib_batch_log

    Then util c/2 should start it OK.
