Danish ADM GUI Access, indexing and caching

OKSVC Made some changes to the test during the test. E.g. the multi-domain harvest only generates 4 jobs, not 5. Previously we used and for windows bitarchive servers. Now we use and instead







 After which I will take a look at as many of the bug-fixes/new-functionality issues as possible.

Step "Verify the restarted system. On devel@kb-test-adm-001" part 1 gives a:

"Attempting to store file '23-metadata-1.warc.gz' with a different checksum than before". Needs follow-up.

Have made JIRA-issues of the remaining errors.

Opensource modules

OK with errors


One part of the test uses /home/devel/devel-config/deployment-configs/default_deploy_config_harvester.xml

We need to

   1) Remove Bitpreservation sitesection from the GUI used;

   2) Avoid using obsolete h3-zip ( when deploying

  3) Update the 1-cache.tar.bz2. It is created with Lucene 2.X. NAS now only supports indices with Lucene 3.X (workaround: use empty cache created when IndexServer starts)

 4) Change the Viewerproxy test to use a freshly made index of a harvest

using a standard NAS installation. (we used instead of the, and a fresh index, that indexes the harvestdata in the 12-data dir)


We had to go kb-test-acs-001 to perform the two wget operations, otherwise the firewall blocked us

because of issue 3


Updated deploy_config_TEST11B.xml to use data from instead of machine which no longer exists.

baseFileDir's E:\bitarkiv, F:\bitarkiv, G:\bitarkiv, H:\bitarkiv, I:\bitarkiv, J:\bitarkiv  

are replaced with baseFileDir's E:\bitarchive_1, F:\bitarchive_2, G:\bitarchive_3, H:\bitarchive_4, I:\bitarchive_5, J:\bitarchive_6

Issue 1: (FIXED in test-description)

Default installation does not work with TEST11B.

We want the test to use existing data in bitarchive_X/filedir

But modifies the scripts to use bitarchive_X/TEST11B/filedir

where there is no data.

Issue 2: Description of Step "Update Checksum and FileStatus" doesn't make much sense

(this issue has been ignored for this test.)

Issue 3: path* does not exist

Have found the compiled scripts in

but we need to have the sourcecode for these

 The manual now assumes that this link works:

Pages on JSP  is no longer correct, as we now have two competing standards for how to make server-pages
