"unknown error" on harvesting

Postby fredriley » Thu Oct 25, 2007 9:41 am

This isn't crucial, but could someone with a working Harvester installation please try to get records from the following base URL:

http://repository.jorum.ac.uk/intralibr ... ibrary-OAI

This is the main UK Higher Education learning object repository (http://www.jorum.ac.uk), and the base URL is the one they've given me. It works in the repository explorer at http://re.cs.uct.ac.za/ which tests repositories for OAI compliance, but Harvester twiddles its thumbs for 30 secs or so then just gives "unknown error". even when I specify start and end dates, so I'd be interested to know if this happens with others before I get onto the repository managers to tell them there's a problem. TIA.

Hi Fred,

That's definitely an OAI URL, but it doesn't appear to be working properly -- point your browser to http://repository.jorum.ac.uk/intralibrary/IntraLibrary-OAI?verb=ListRecords&metadataPrefix=oai_dc, which is a typical OAI request, and see if it works from your end. From here, the server just appears to stall.
