    Upgrade Express: "./ext01/tab/job_list is in a demo library"

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

    We see these messages in Upgrade Express step 5:

    A_WARNING: /ealeph/aleph/a18_1/ext01/tab/job_list is in a demo library.
    A_WARNING: /ealeph/aleph/a18_1/vir01/tab/job_list is in a demo library.

    ./a18_1/ext01/tab/path_convert has this as its final line:

    $ext01_dev/ext01/tab/ill_format_type $usm40_dev/usm40/tab/ill_format_type

    Shouldn't this be:

    $ext01_dev/ext01/tab/ill_format_type $usm01_dev/usm01/ill_format_type

    In the case of vir01 and ext01 these warnings can be ignored. (path_convert-ing them to usm01 is correct.)

    As described in KB 8192-3387, you (probably) do not want to have one of your abcxx libraries being path_convert-ed to usmxx.

    You should not have to worry about vir01 or ext01. These are Ex Libris-controlled libraries which are in the a-tree.

    The lines you show for vir01 path_convert are what I find in the vir01 path_convert on our server, so that is fine.

    The last line for the ext01 path_convert on our server is:

    $ext01_dev/ext01/tab/ill_format_type $usm40_dev/usm40/tab/ill_format_type

    As you note, the ext01/tab has an ill_format_type -- but because of the path_convert the usm40/tab/ill_format_type will be used instead. I will ask our staff to clear up this inconsistency (by deleting the ext01 tab/ill_format_type).

    Anyway, I think you should leave the last line of the ext01 path_convert as:

    $ext01_dev/ext01/tab/ill_format_type $usm40_dev/usm40/tab/ill_format_type
