    Upgrade Express script for Course Reserves indexing: util a/17/6/1 for triggers

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Because, we have 23 colleges I have to set up 23 course reserve installations. In the Upgrade Express post upgrade steps it calls for running 6 index jobs, creating z127 and setting the two triggers. It is a pain doing this manually, so I am working on a script that will do all the steps. The indexes and the "create 127," are in good shape (at least my testing indicates the script works for those steps).

    I have never tried, or even know if it is possible, to run a util step in batch. i.e., is there a way to run a specific util step from the command line, What I would need, of course, is to execute the util/a/17/6/1/2 with z120 as a parameter and again with 127.

    There are cases where there is a "batch" version of util menu procedure (see, for example, KBs 8192-4744 and 16384-23522), but there is no batch version of util_a_17_06_01.

    You will need to do util a/17/6/1 for each Course Reserves library after the script for the other indexes is run.

    You don't do util a/17/6/1 for a particular table; you do it for a particular library. When you do util a/17/6/1 for library xyz30, *all* the necessary triggers will be built.
