Hi Shilen,

When I upgraded our production database running grouper 2.1.4 in the dev
environment to grouper 2.2.0 even thought upgrade script completed
successfully none of the views starting with grouper_attr_asn_* and
grouper_aval_asn_* got created. I also ran postGrouper2_2Upgrade.gsh as
part of upgrade. Is it some kind of bug in the upgrade script?
