    z36_letter_date updated, but overdue notice not produced

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

    Problem Symptoms:
    Overdue notices which should be produced by a job_list job are not produced, that is, they are not found in either the ./xxx50/print directory or in the print directory's save-yyyy-mm-dd subdirectories, but the z36_letter_date *has* been updated, indicating the production of a notice.

    Cause:
    The notice was produced but the output file it was in was overwritten by a subsequent overdue job (which ran before the notice could be processed by the print daemon).

    Resolution:
    Make sure that the name of the print file for each overdue job is unique.

    Additional Information

    If a job_list job produces overdue notices which *are* seen in the ./xxx50/print files but are not actually printed, consult Article 000022101 ("save-yyyy-mm-dd subdirectories in ./xxx50/print directory").
