    manage-07: Z13_ID2: "name is already used by an existing object"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21

    Problem Symptoms:
    manage-07 ("Update Short Bibliographic Records") completed but the log shows the following error:

    20:56:59 aleph_admin@ALEPH21> CREATE INDEX XXX01.Z13_ID2 ON XXX01.Z13 (Z13_UPD_TIME_STAMP ASC)
    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-00955: name is already used by an existing object



    * util a/17/11/2 shows that the z13 record count is exactly the same as the z00 count -- which is exactly what it should be; and

    * util a/17/14 shows that the z13 Oracle indexes are present and valid; and

    * the $data_scratch/p_manage_07.cycles shows that all cycles completed successfully

    it seems that the job recovered from this error and produced all the z13's it should, and that the error message can be ignored.
