    open_new_library: "/exlibris/aleph/u20_2/abc04 already exists; process stopped

    In trying to re-run $aleph_proc/open_new_library for abc04, I get the message: "/exlibris/aleph/u20_2/abc04 already exists; process stopped."

    In order to re-run this procedure for the existing library abc04, you need to remove the /exlibris/aleph/u20_2/abc04/ directory and all its subdirectories:

    > rm -r abc04

    Note: this command should be run *only* as part of the opening a new library procedure. It deletes all of the abc04 Aleph tables.

    (You don't need to do anything with the Oracle user, library,etc.; the procedure handles that.)
