Re: [EP-tech] EPrints DataCite Plugin

Hi Michael,

There are a number of issues that have been fixed with this plugin
based on looking at:


Which version of the DataCiteDoi plugin are you using and what
operating system (e.g. RHEL 7, Ubuntu 16.04, etc.) is your EPrints
repository running on.

This seems likely a likely issue:


However, I assume you have not recently changed your EPrints repository
OS, so I am not sure how minting DOIs would have stopped working
without you deliberately upgrading the OS.

Also can you check your indexer log (EPRINTS_PATH/var/indexer.log) for
error message straight after trying to mint/coin a DOI.  Make sure any
failed tasks for minting a DOI for the same EPrint have been deleted
otherwise it is likely the task will not be created.
