    Course info not displaying after v20 upgrade

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

    Description:
    After refreshing the database on our Aleph 20 server (from Aleph18), I've tried to re-run the process for linking up the course reserve records (per KB 16384-25617). The indexing jobs (steps 1-4) are not working. Bibliographic information is indexing, but course related information is not. Also, viewing the records in the OPAC, I see bib data (e.g. author/title) but not course data (e.g., instructor, course number).

    Resolution:
    Dlib-ed to abc50, I get this when I do util f/4 for the z108:

    Oracle error: fetch z108
    ORA-01007: variable not in select list

    The fetch error indicates that the z108 data is not in the format v20 is expecting.

    You will note that the ./alephm/source/copy/Z108 file has a Z108-REC-KEY with the 4-byte Z108-COURSE-SEQUENCE at the end while the desc lacks that.

    The 18-19 UE step which converts the z108 from v18 to v19/20 is 1013. It seems that this step was not executed against this z108,... or it failed.

    Though there are no errors, the 1013 step was not executing properly ... we see this in the log:

    Step begin 1013
    ___ drop table abc50.z108
    ___ create table abc50.z108 as (select * from abc30.z108)
    ___ drop table abc30.z108

    Modifying data_root/file_list: add z108 in adm libraries according to Z30
    Updating data_scratch/file_list for adm libraries...


    Whereas we *should* see this:

    Step begin 1013
    ___ drop table abc50.z108
    ___ create table abc50.z108 as (select * from abc30.z108)
    ___ drop table abc30.z108

    The upgrade_util -> Upgrade parameters -> View Current Parameters has:

    Libraries to be upgraded:
    abc30

    Even though you are running only the 1013 step, that step needs to have abc50 in the list in order to be able to operate on that library also.

    Remember: the UE step 1013 requires that the input z108 be in the xxx30 library. Since the previous 1013 will have deleted it, you need to move the unconverted z108 back to the abc30 from the abc50 -- or get it from somewhere else -- prior to rerunning step 1013.
