    Follow implementation notes of rc 3125 (Version 22)


    1) Verify that the file uncertified-host-goto-error exists under ./pds/html_form/global directory.

    If the file doesn't exist, run the following command:

    cp uncertified-host-error uncertified-host-goto-error


    2) Verify that ./pds/conf_table/general_conf file is configured with the allowed hosts:



    HOSTS = <my host domain>

    CHECK = Y

    How do I know if my institution is using PDS in the Aleph system?

    Check the configuration of 


    PDS-AWARE=Y - your institution is using PDS - follow the instructions of 'PDS customers'

    PDS-AWARE=N - your institution is not using PDS - follow the instructions of 'for customers not using Patron Directory Service (PDS)'
