    publish_06 fails with error message "Variable name too long " in Aleph 22, SP 22.0.3

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 22

    Problem Symptoms:
    Since installation of SP 22.0.3 publishing process "Create Tar File for ALEPH Published Records (publish-06)" does not work correctly any longer on SUN SOLARIS machines but quits with error message
    Variable name too long

    ERROR! Failed to execute csh /exlibris/aleph/a22_2/aleph/proc/p_publish_06 (RC=1)


    Rep_change 2067:

    Description: p-publish-06 - Following rc #123, the service fails in Solaris with release lower than 11.
    A new variable introduced in rc #123 for the service "Create Tar File for ALEPH Published Records (publish-06)" exceeds 20 characters and therefore is not accepted in Solaris 10.

    Solution: This has been corrected. The name of the variable used to prevent the deletion of empty directories under the publishing path has been changed from keep_publish_empty_dir to keep_publish_dir.
