    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 9.0.0, 9.1.0

    Defect Status

    Issue VYG-5730 is resolved for Voyager 9.1.0 and higher.


    1. Edit /m1/voyager/xxxdb/ini/z3950svr.ini
    2. Find the ZServer setting: ZServer=localhost
    3. Change the ZServer value from "localhost" to "": ZServer=
    4. Restart the z3950svr process for that Voyager instance:
      1. On Solaris: svcadm restart xxxdb/Pz3950svr
      2. On Linux:
        • ps -ef | grep z3950 | grep xxxdb| awk {'print $2'} | xargs kill
        • /m1/voyager/xxxdb/sbin/Pz3950svr

    Additional Information

    If the server supports IPv6, use "::0" instead: ZServer=::0
