Installing / Updating MDM JAVA API and MDM Connector
I have a customer who has just upgraded to SRM-MDM Catalog 3.0 SP15. My understanding is that this requires an installation (or upgrade) of the MDM 7.1 Connector and all the other components to SP10 .
The customer has given me the following release information;
MDM_JAVA_API 710 SP10 (1000.710.0.10.279.20140505035800)
SRM_MDM_CAT 3.0 SP15 (1000.3.0.15.0.20130911065718)
According to my reading of http://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/SRM/SRM-MDM+Catalog+version+compatibility and 1789405 - SRM-MDM Catalog 3.0 SP15 Patch 00 Release Note, this combination of components should work. HOWEVER.... they are getting symptoms identical to those described in 1650896 - SRM-MDM “Login Failed” error.
In short, I want to install (or at least verify) that they have the latest MDM Connector installed, so could someone help me with the following questions...
1) On the client side, are the MDM Connector and the MDM_JAVA_API the same thing ?
2) In both the MDM Installation Guide for Windows and the MDM Installation Guide for UNIX, in the chapter Installing Additional MDM Components,
for MDM Java API and MDM Connector, the instructions are:
Deploy the components on your Java machine.
What components do I deploy and, for an SAP Enterprise Portal, where ?
we were facing the same problem before.it is just the verison match problem.
MDM Java API and MDM Connector are two components for mdm, they are needed to be depolyed on the portal's java Application Server.
for your mdm catalog sp15,it is tested with the mdm 188.8.131.52, it means that you need to use the MDM 7.1 SP10 Patch204 or above Patch,also read the MDM's release note.the java API, MDM Connector version must be the same with the MDM server.
by the way,take the portal version and SRM version into consideration,check the note to match all the versions.
