    oracle_imp_aleph_libs: "...export.gz_aa or ...data.export.gz_aa do not exist"

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

    Description:
    In upgrading from version 17 to version 20, we get the following when we run oracle_imp_aleph_libs:

    file /exlibris/aleph/a20_1/tmp/abc04/files/abc04.export.gz_aa or
    /exlibris/aleph/a20_1/tmp/abc04/files/abc04.data.export.gz_aa do not exist
    can not import library abc04
    library abc04 was not erased!

    The reason there is no abc04.export.gz_aa or abc04.data.export.gz_aa is that the abc04 library does not exist on our version 17.

    Resolution:
    The problem is that oracle_imp_aleph_libs is expecting input for all of the non-demo-libraries in $ALEPH_LIBS. $ALEPH_LIBS is defined in aleph_start.private. You need to:

    > cp aleph_start.private aleph_start.private.withabc04

    Then remove abc04 from the $ALEPH_LIBS line -- and each other occurrence of abc04 in aleph_start.private. Then do:

    > source aleph_start [this also gets the updated aleph_start.private]

    Then re-run oracle_imp_aleph_libs.
