Story #8853

Updated by Matthew Jones about 3 years ago

In this case the cn.resolve() operation should be ignoring the node that is marked as offline, or at least placing it last in the list.

This should be a high priority fix, and should be fairly simple to implement since the information is available in the node document.

> OK, thanks. That's why I thought the link in DataONE https://cn.dataone.org/cn/v2/resolve/EOD_CLO_2016.csv.gz would take me to a working version, but clearly I just don't understand the details. We'll just use the the one on KNB at least for the moment. Really appreciate your help as always.
