    aleph_startup not working after SP installation

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

    Description:
    I installed the latest Service Pack on our TEST server. Everything went well, except for the aleph_startup. We get a lot of error messages and Aleph does not restart completely.

    We get that kind of lines :

    /exlibris/aleph/a18_2/aleph/exe/rts32: error while loading shared libraries: libjava.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    - ABC30
    /exlibris/aleph/a18_2/aleph/exe/rts32: error while loading shared libraries: libjava.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    [1] 26165
    /exlibris/aleph/a18_2/aleph/exe/rts32: error while loading shared libraries: libjava.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    - XYZ30

    I know that when I ran util SP4, I got a message about adding lines in aleph_start, but I lost that message and I can't retrieve what line I have to add in aleph_start.

    Resolution:
    Thanks for installing the SP on our TEST server.

    I installed SP 1280 on our PROD server yesterday, using the new util SP procedure. The message that I was looking is is the following :

    Please select [0]: 1
    Are you sure you want to install Service Pack 1280 Y/[N] Y

    Attention: Java support is required for SP installation.
    Please add the lines below to the end of $alephe_root/aleph_start,
    before the final "exit" command.
    Then, run "source $alephe_root/aleph_start" and re-run Service Pack installation:

    if ($unix_name == "LINUX") then
    setenv JAVA_MACHINE i386
    else
    setenv JAVA_MACHINE `uname -p`
    endif

    setenv JAVA_ENABLED TRUE
    setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH "${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/$JAVA_MACHINE"
    setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH "${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/$JAVA_MACHINE/server"

    press <Enter> to continue

    So I added the relevant lines in aleph_start, installed the Service Pack and got no error messages when I restarted Aleph Services with aleph_startup.
