    What is ue_23 and how can we prevent it from starting automatically?

    ue_23 is related to an interface called “HK System”. See "How to Integrate Aleph with HK System" in the Doc Portal - How To - Circulation.

    The HK system is an Automated Retrieval System-ARS (also known as Warehouse Management System-WMS) that is used to handle storage and accessibility to library materials that are warehoused at remote storage facilities.

    You only need ue-23 when you are using such a system in your library.

    v20 rep_change 2595 implements a separate startup_libs environment variable - "HKMESS_STARTUP_LIBS" to handle the ue_23 daemon. As described in the Implementation Notes, you need to comment out the UE _23 lines in your aleph_startup.

    If you do not yet have this rep_change, in $alephe_root/aleph_startup on your server, check if there is the following section:

    # UE_23

    echo "starting hk system message daemon..."

    if ($?MESSAGE_STARTUP_LIBS) then
    set message_startup_libs = ($MESSAGE_STARTUP_LIBS)
    set message_startup_libs = ""

    foreach lib ($message_startup_libs)
    start_proc00 $lib
    echo " - $active_library "
    source $aleph_proc/util_e_23

    echo " "


    If you change this so that each line is preceded by a hash, then ue_23 will no longer start automatically.
