Could you please let us know:

1. what version of Koha are you running?
2. what operating system and version/distro?

Also, if you're getting a 500 error, there's gonna be an Apache log
saying what the error is, please paste in the relevant lines from that

It's possible we need to add a new column to the Z39.50 table to allow
specifying the OID for the server. Could you give us the Z39.50
target info so we can test the target's responses? (please don't send
user/password info on the list though).
