    Checking Parallel base:"The requested file was not found on the server" (find-b)

    Description:
    I've begun parallel indexing in our Test region between our BIB ABC01 library and indexing library ABC02. I have finished the keyword and headings indexing and want to check the results. I have added this line to our Test instance tab_base.eng:

    ABC02 Parallel BIB Library ABC01 ABC02 N

    And added this to our base-list-abc01:

    <tr>
    <td><a href="&server_f?func=find-b-0&local_base=ABC02">Parallel BIB Library</a> </td>
    <td> </td>
    </tr>

    When I try to access the ABC02 base from the above link in our Test OPAC, I get the following error:

    The requested file was not found on the server.
    Please contact the library administration and
    inform them about this problem

    Resolution:
    The www_server log has the following line each time you try to access abc02:

    Info: Empty table /exlibris/aleph/u18_2/abc02/www_f_eng/find-b

    You will note that it is looking for the find-b file in the ./abc02/www_f_eng/ -- which, of course, does not exist.

    The problem is that the ./abc02/tab/path_convert refers to abc01, when it should be referring to abc02:

    $abc01_dev/abc01/www_f_eng $alephe_root/www_f_eng

    Looking at "How To Open a New Library", there's the step #3, "csh -f $aleph_proc/open_new_library ...". As noted in the "Template Library - Mandatory" section, this procedure *should* have created a path_convert with "abc02" substituted for "abc01".

    (I note that the other $data_tab files which should have ABC02 instead of ABC01 also do not:

    pc_tab_sear.eng
    tab_locate
    tab_rlin )
