Helios and 64-bit P5.2.x
Posted by Andre Kuehnemund on 04 September 2015 12:11
We have observed inconsistencies with regard to restoring files that had been backed up from Helios servers running Archiware P5.2.x (64bit). We have observed similar inconsistencies when accessing files that had been synchronized from Helios servers running Archiware P5.2.x (64bit).
As older P5 installations would have been upgraded to the 32-bit version of P5.2.x, only new P5.2 installation should be affected by this.
These issues only occur with the 64-bit version of P5.2.x. They will be resolved in version 5.3.
In the meantime, please switch to the 32-bit release of P5.2.x by changing the 'bin' symbolic link inside the P5 installation directory (typically 'usr/local/aw'). To do so:
- Delete the existing 'bin' symbolic link
- Create a new symbolic link that points at the 32-bit binaries folder
On a Mac it would look like this:
imac-i7:~ akuehnemund$ cd /usr/local/aw
imac-i7:aw akuehnemund$ sudo ./stop-server
imac-i7:aw akuehnemund$ ls -l
imac-i7:aw akuehnemund$ sudo rm ./bin
imac-i7:aw akuehnemund$ sudo ln -s /usr/local/aw/binaries/Darwin/i386/ bin
imac-i7:aw akuehnemund$ sudo ./start-server
