    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21


    What do the different messages (A_ERROR, A_WARNING, A_INFO) in the Upgrade Express logs indicate?


    * The A_INFO messages are the lowest severity. They should be read, but, generally, don't require any special action.

    * The A_WARNING messages may or may not require action. If the "3. Run Upgrade Express" step is being run, then messages such as the following will appear:

    "A_WARNING: The file xxxx already exists!" -- in regard to which, see the article " Upgrade Express: "A_WARNING: The file xxxx already exists!" " (KB 16384-63441).

    * The A_ERROR messages usually require action. The most common are:

    1. "Merge manually" messages, in regard to which, see the articles:
        a. " Upgrade Express: "The file can not be upgraded automatically. Merge manually!" "   (KB 16384-26529)  and
        b.  " Dealing with UE warning & error messages for XSL files " (KB 16384-30804) 

    2. "The table znn does not exist in xxxnn", in regard to which, see the article " Upgrade Express: "A_ERROR: The table znn does not exist in xxxnn" " (KB 16384-63474) 

    Additional Information
