    Error for z101_id opening new library: "Such column list already indexed"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 16.02

    Description:
    I need to know if this ORA error that appeared in the LOG when I opened up a new library is an issue?

    Elapsed: 00:00:00.01
    15:29:55 SQL-ALEPH_ADMIN> CREATE UNIQUE INDEX ODN07.Z101_ID ON ABC07.Z101 (Z101_REC_KEY ASC)
    *
    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-01408: such column list already indexed

    Resolution:
    I find that when I do util a/17/4 for the z101_id it says that it is not managed by abc07, but when I try util a/17/2 to create the z101_id, I get the "Such column list already indexed" message which you describe.

    But doing util a/17/14 for abc07, I find the following:

    Enter Table Name : z101

    Defined in file_list:
    __________________________________________________________
    IND z101_id 128M 0K TS3X
    __________________________________________________________

    Exist in the Database:

    INDEX_NAME STATUS INDEX_TYPE UNIQUENESS COLUMN_NAME
    --------------- ------- ---------- ----------- --------------------
    IOT_Z101 VALID IOT - TOP UNIQUE Z101_REC_KEY

    Note that the name of the index is not "Z101_ID" but rather "IOT_Z101". This has to do with the fact that the $alephm_root/sql_tab/z101_create.sql on your server contains the following line:

    CONSTRAINT IOT_Z101 PRIMARY KEY

    (This site seems to be the only one with this line in z101_create.sql.)
