Dear ASpace list,

 From one of our Archivists:

> When I create a new container, either manually or by spreadsheet 
> ingest, the container appears properly in the Instance field of the 
> record. From the resource, I can open the container record and it 
> appears to be associated with the resource correctly. However, in the 
> container management module, when I search for all containers 
> associated with the collection, the recently created container is not 
> listed. If I search for the new container's barcode, the container 
> appears in the search results but with no associated resource. I can 
> also locate the new containers by searching for unassociated containers.

It seems like some linkage is not happening here.

More, this is only happening in his Repository, not our other, larger 

Has anyone else run into this?
