    PDS Error

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: MetaLib
    • Product Version: 3

    Description:
    I have the following error in the pds_server.log :
    ServiceHandle failed = 11
    What can I do to find the source of this problem ?

    Resolution:
    The problem is due to an incorrect change in the PDS password.
    The password must be changed in the tab_service.institute file as well as in the ./dat01/tab/tab_management table.
    Following are instructions for changing the PDS password:

    Change the PDS password entered in the ‘tab_management’ table as follows:
    >> dlib dat01
    >> dt
    >> vi tab_management

    Change the password in Col. 2
    1 2 3 4 5
    pds 1234 Y METALIB pds

    After changing this file, rerun www_m server:
    >> start_w

    In addition add the following to ./pds/conf_table/tab_service.institute :
    INSTITUTE-CODE CITYUNIV
    SERVICES AUTHENTICATE
    PROGRAM-NAME metalib_x_server.pl wwww.myuni.com,8334,BOR-AUTH,N,pds,1234
    END

    Where “pds” is the username and “1234” is the new password

    Note that if NO username & password have been added, then the default values ( pds / pds ) are understood.

    Additional Information

    PDS,password,
