    base/library locked error again

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

    Problem Symptoms:
    Error message "Base/library locked" appears randomly during search in Web OPAC, although the library is not locked. No error messages in WWW Server log files.

    clear_vir01 is running every night on hot mode, but has never run on cold mode.

    Resolved by running clear_vir01 (util x/8) on COLD mode while Aleph is down.
    1. cd $alephe_root
    2. ./aleph_shutdown
    3. dlib vir01
    4. util x/8
    5. cd $alephe_root
    6. ./aleph_startup
