1.6 ScrollKeeper Fails After Installation


ScrollKeeper fails after Jumpstarts, upgrades and live upgrades. 


ScrollKeeper fails due to software dependencies not being available. The workaround is as follows: 

For all installations, upgrades and live upgrades that install directly into the root filesystem, the ScrollKeeper database is propagated during the installation, using a postinstall script provided with each package as required. 

For all other installations that do not install into the root filesystem directory, the postinstall script does not propagate the ScrollKeeper database. 

You must propagate the ScrollKeeper database manually when you log in for the first time. You need root access to perform this action. Execute the following commands in the C locale: 

  1. su password

  2. /usr/bin/scrollkeeper-rebuilddb

In some cases, the location of /usr/bin/scrollkeeper-rebuilddb might be similar to the following: {INSTALL_ROOT}/usr/bin/scrollkeeper-rebuilddb
