    Should clear_arc (util x/11) also be executed for ADM libraries?

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 3


    The Aleph Configuration for ARC 3.0, Appendix D, mentions utility clear_arc (util x/11) for BIB and USR library.
    Should clear_arc be set also for ADM libraries in a multi-ADM environment?


    No, the ETL process (arc_01) clears the z900 for ADM at the end of the process.

    Additional Information

    When ETL last parameter is N (default), the z900 is also cleared from BIB and USR.
    For multi-ADM environments, the last ETL parameter is Y, and z900 is only removed from the ADM.
    It should be removed from BIB and USR by util x/11 or by the clear_arc job, after ETL has run for all the ADMs.
