Vault error 15817 explained

Issue

File won't load into Vault, e2loaderd log has errors

Cause

20:24:15 ERROR 15817: unknown journal entry type [| 0x7C] was detected in journal line [|]

Resolution

UPDATED: September 25, 2017
This error can happen for a few different reasons:
 
sometimes that can be because you need
 
documents=journal
 
for flat file journal
 
or documents=XMLJournal
 
for Xml journal
 
if you have the wrong setting in profiles.ini you can get that error
 
it could also be that its a flat file journal but the journal doesn't follow the spec in the customizing guide



If you have documents-journal and you've verified that it is a flat file journa and you're still getting this error, check to see if the flat file journal is Unicode ASCII versus regular ASCII.
 

If it's Unicode ASCII then you need to use 

documents=ujournal in the profiles.ini.

See page 40 of the Vault customizing guide for a discussion off all the possible journal types.
