    sip2_server: "Error: Active library 'SYS50' is not a ADM library - exiting"

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

    We upgraded to version 20 this weekend and our sip2_server is not working. We are getting the following error:

    Error: Active library 'SYS50' is not a ADM library - exiting.

    The settings we are using are identical to our settings in version 19. Any suggestions?

    In testing the REST API, I had changed the setting to N. This was to get JBOSS to work. We are looking hard at using the REST API instead of X-services for some of our peripheral services. So it looks like we might have a problem in the future with our set up. See follow-up KB 16384-40257.
