Upon Attempt to Build/Rebuild the Verity 4.5.1 Search Index on IBM AIX 5.3, You Receive the Error "Segmentation fault(coredump) " (Doc ID 447738.1)

Last updated on MAY 31, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version: 7.5.1 to 7.5.1 - Release: Stellent to Stellent
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)
IBM AIX Based Systems (64-bit)


While the issue was previously reported when using the search index rebuild functionality provided within the Repository Manager admin applet, it can also be reproduced as in the following example:

Run MKVDK manually per the following (your paths and bulkload data will likely be different):

1. Run term command: export LIBPATH=/opt/apps/stellent/idc/shared/search/vdk4/_rs6k43/bin/:/opt/apps/stellent2cons/idc/shared/search/vdk4/_rs6k43/bin/filters

2. Change to the Verity bin folder by term command: cd opt/apps/stellent/idc/shared/search/vdk4/_rs6k43/bin

3. Run Verity mkvdk via term command: mkvdk -vdkhome /opt/apps/stellent2cons/idc/shared/search/vdk4/common -update -create -style /opt/apps/stellent2cons/idc/search/index2/style/ -logFile /opt/apps/stellent2cons/idc/weblayout/groups/secure/logs/verity/search.log -loglevel 127 -datefmt YMD -locale englishx -collection /opt/apps/stellent2cons/idc/search/index2/intradocbasic/ -bulk /opt/apps/stellent2cons/idc/search/index2/bulkload/110043.txt

Output from Step 3:

mkvdk done
mkvdk - Verity, Inc. Version 4.5.1 (_rs6k43, Jan 28 2004)
mkvdk: internal error 0: the collection already exists
mkvdk: internal error -2: couldn't set create flag
mkvdk: internal error -2: failed to perform setup
mkvdk done

4. Run the previous command again. but without the "-create" option.

Output from step 4:

mkvdk done
/apps/stellent/idc/search/index2/bulkload/150136.txt <
