AnswerBook2 Bugs

The ab2admin Command Intermittently Indicates command failed Even Though the Command Succeeded (4242577)

If the ab2admin command fails, the error message contains additional information besides command failed. For example, it may also include path not found or invalid ID.

Workaround: If the message command failed is displayed, make sure that the operation failed. For example, if the command you submitted should have deleted a collection from the AnswerBook2 database, type the following command to verify that the collection is displayed in the database.

# ab2admin -o list 
You can frequently ignore the message command failed when no additional information is provided.
