    V4 upgrade errors during PPUK

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

    Problem Symptoms:
    Two errors in the run of PPUK:

    1. ? Errors in console during step 2 of PPUK (Primo Pre-Check Upgrade Kit) "Check if there is enough memory to enable new V4 features":
    syntax error on line 1, teletype
    ./scripts/check_memory.bash: line 58: 175 * : syntax error: operand expected (error token is " ")
    ./scripts/check_memory.bash: line 61: +: syntax error: operand expected (error token is "+")
    ./scripts/check_memory.bash: line 70: [: -ge: unary operator expected

    There is enough memory on this machine. You may proceed.

    2. Error in FE PPUK run step 1 "V4pre_upgrade.log":
    ---- Checking disk space...

    DB is on this machine = true
    current available disk space in /exlibris is: 66 GB
    disk space required for Primo V4 is: 30 GB

    V3 DB datafiles = 65 GB.
    V3 DB tempfiles = 12 GB.
    disk space required for the database upgrade is 154 GB
    db mount point is = /exlibris1
    current available disk space in /exlibris1 is: 0
    ---- Not enough space for DB files.
    ---- Failed.
    ###### - The Fail is wrong since the DB mount has more than 66% free space. (not 0 as described in log)

    Unknown Under Development's investigation.

    Errors may be ignored if system stands up to the system requirements described in the "Primo Upgrade Express User Guide 3.1.2 to 4.0x" guide in chapter 2 in "General Notes" chapter.
