    AIK: license: no way to save and exit.

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    In trying to create a v21 instance using the v21 AIK ikit_menu:

    5. Aleph software installation and configuration

    3. Update license


    OK 1. Extract Aleph Base
    OK 2. Aleph software configuration
    - 3. Update license
    * 4. Install Service Pack
    - 5. Relocate alephe directory
    - 6. Update auto startup/shutdown script

    Enter key (q to quit)[q]: 3 <--- Update license

    :wq

    The ":wq" does not do a save and exit, but is just included as part of the file -- and there is no way to exit.

    Cause:
    "Insert" was on ; failure to get out of Insert mode.

    Resolution:
    Press the Insert key (to toggle out of Insert mode) before doing ":wq".
