    Upgrade Express - upgrade_util: "def_local_env: No such file or directory"

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

    Description:
    We are upgrading from ALEPH 18-21, after we finish the step of Install Customer Data (all in one)under upgrade_express_2001-2101 on the new server, the install_utree.log shows a lot of errors and it seems the ORACLE data is not installed . The log is attached.
    When I login the server, I got these info:
    cd /exlibris/aleph/a21_1/alephm
    Execute master cshrc
    /exlibris/aleph/a18_1/alephm/prof_master: No such file or directory.
    > cd "/exlibris/aleph/upgrade_express_2001_2101"


    Also, when I try to do upgrade_util on the new server, I get:
    /exlibris/aleph/upgrade_express_2001_2101
    > upgrade_util
    /exlibris/aleph/a18_1/aleph/proc/def_local_env: No such file or directory

    Resolution:
    Looking at the /exlibris/aleph/u21_1/alephe/aleph_start on the v21 target, saw this:

    setenv ALEPH_VERSION 18
    setenv ALEPH_COPY 1


    that is, it was the v18 aleph_start. As noted in the Upgrading Aleph 18-21 - Upgrade Express.modified.ACTUAL RUN.doc, [Screen 17], you need to:


    "Manually synchronize the new /alephe/aleph_start file with the aleph_start file supplied with the target installation under the utree supplied with the version [saved as alephe.orig]. It is recommended to merge the files by taking the file supplied with the installation and adding local specifications into the new file.

    > cd /exlibris/aleph/u21_1/alephe
    > mv aleph_start aleph_start.fromv20
    > cp -p /exlibris/aleph/u21_1/alephe.orig/aleph_start .

    <Change pw_library, usr_library, and z105_library setenv’s to local value.>"


    I did exactly the above:

    > cd /exlibris/aleph/u21_1/alephe
    > mv aleph_start aleph_start.fromv20
    > cp -p /exlibris/aleph/u21_1/alephe.orig/aleph_start .
    > vi aleph_start
    ...
    > su - aleph
    Password:

    [Then log off and log back on.]

    Execute aleph cshrc
