SDI not working in new catalog

We have not succeeded in setting up SDI (selective dissemination of information) for any searches in the new catalog. Incident 16384-55666 was opened by Chris Milazzo with Ex Libris on 9-16-2008: WEBV:SDI:does the opacjob run on the old webvoyage?

Site is trying to set up SDI with the new WebVoyage interface. They’ve started set up on test poni right now . . . It’s fine for us to create a test patron to work on this issue. Previously when they ran the opacjob on prod server, they got an error (mentions path to webvoyage.ini), and they can’t tell if it is doing anything that would grab statistics from the new tomcat WebVoyage. They’re wondering before they test more if there are additional pieces they need to set up for using this with new WebVoyage, or do they need to specify a new path somewhere?
