    Strange search results

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

    Description:
    I ran a quicksearch, but instead of results, it looked like the screen had refreshed, sans all of the image files!

    Resolution:
    This is one of many indications that you need to delete some of your utf_files:

    >>cd $metalib_utf
    >>cd utf_files
    >>ls -rlt
    drwxr-xr-x 4 metalib exlibris 4096 Jun 6 09:42 dat01/
    drwxrwxr-x 4 metalib exlibris 4096 Jun 6 09:42 pds/
    drwxr-xr-x 4 metalib exlibris 4096 Jun 6 09:45 ins01/ [*your instance library name may be different*]
    drwxr-xr-x 4 metalib exlibris 4096 Jun 6 09:45 ins00/
    drwxr-xr-x 3 metalib exlibris 4096 Jun 6 09:47 vir00/
    >>cd ins01
    >>pwd (just to be sure you're in the right directory!)
    /exlibris/metalib/m4_7/utf_file/ins01
    >>rm –rf *

    Once the utf_files have been cleared you should be able to resume searching.
