    FTP login and instructions for Vivisimo license patch (January 2009)

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: MetaLib
    • Product Version: 4

    Description:
    Instructions on how to download and install a patch to correct a problem with an invalid Vivisimo license key from ftp.exlibris.co.il.

    Resolution:
    As noted in messages from Ex Libris Support sent on January 13, an invalid license key for the embedded Vivisimo clustering engine impacted the clustering/faceting functionality in all MetaLib version 4.0 and higher installations. We have resolved this issue with Vivisimo and agreed upon a process to ensure this problem does not reoccur in the future.

    We have placed a package on the Ex Libris FTP server to address this problem. The package contains a README file and a script to replace the existing Vivisimo license key with a new license key:

    update_vivisimo_license.README
    update_vivisimo_license.csh


    Ex Libris FTP Server ftp.exlibris.co.il

    The login to ftp.exlibris.co.il is:

    Username: mik
    Password: M0zart4

    To download the patch files:

    1) Login to ftp.exlibris.co.il

    2) Make sure the FTP server is in binary mode and that the interactive mode is OFF

    ftp> bin

    ftp> prompt

    ftp> cd patch

    ftp> get update_vivisimo_license.csh

    ftp> get update_vivisimo_license.README

    ftp> quit


    The script ‘update_vivisimo_license.csh’ replaces the license key of the Vivisimo engine in the ‘$metalib_dev/metalib_conf/metalib_start’ file.

    To apply this change:

    1) Download the script to your $TMPDIR directory

    2) Execute the script by the command:

    >> source update_vivisimo_license.csh

    3) If you previously disabled clustering in MetaLib by changing the parameter CLUSTER_FACET in ‘$metalib_dev/metalib_conf/www_server.conf’ to N, you must now re-enable clustering in MetaLib by changing the parameter back to Y

    4) Restart MetaLib servers

    >> $metalib_conf/metalib_startup
