    Installing Test and Prod instances on same server

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Install a Test Aleph v21 instance on the same server as the Production Aleph v21 instance.

    1. To create the Aleph 21Test application as an identical copy of the Production application the Ex Libris Installation Team needs to perform an Aleph copy installation. This is a chargeable service.

    2. To install a second Aleph 21 application (a Test instance) from scratch, the AIK can be run (by the customer) a second time:

    -- Back up the AIK directory /exlibris/ftp_from_exlibris/aik used during the previous Aleph 21 installation (for reference) by renaming it to, for instance, /exlibris/ftp_from_exlibris/aik.first
    -- Delete all other files and subdirectories from the directory /exlibris/ftp_from_exlibris
    -- Download the current version of the AIK 21 and extract it in directory /exlibris/ftp_from_exlibris
    -- Run through the AIK
    -- Select slot 2 (a21_2) as location of Aleph software
    -- Select database name other than aleph21 (-- such as aleph21t)
