    After service pack installation PDS login takes a long time

    • Article Type: General

    We are part of a consortium and recently installed a Metalib service pack.
    We have not implemented any of the optional changes yet.
    As soon as we ran the service pack we encountered a problem.
    Logging onto Metalib via PDS with the ABC institute selected takes almost a minute.
    If you select DEF, this does not happen.
    The profiles for the institutions are the same, except for the library they reference.
    Why is this happening?

    The ports in the /exlibris/metalib/m3_1/pds/conf_table/ differed from the ports in tab_service.def.

    Once the ABC file was updated, the login worked immediately.
