Repository Dropdown List Empty

hello everyone,

i'm trying to create an MDM system object in the portal. when i specify the server name and click "next", on the next screen to select a repository, the dropdown list of repository names is empty.

i log onto the console and i have two repositories loaded and running, so i was expecting to them in the dropdown list.

i also have two important questions while debugging the problem:

1) on the screen where i specify the MDM server, there is also a field for password. i didn't enter one, but that password field is for the Admin user? I tried putting in the admin password, but got the same results. So what is the password field for? Which MDM user id?

2) my MDM server is at and the MDM java API portal component is at the application and technology portal components are also at is this java api version difference the problem?

thanks and let me know if you have any ideas,

Hi Mike,

If the application is requiring a password when connecting to a server, this password is a specific server-level password (not related to the "Admin" user of a repository); if it has not been set on the server, the password is blank. I would be surprised to hear that the application is written in such a way to require dissemination of this password, as it controls a variety of server-level permissions for the Console operations (such as creating, mounting, and deleting a repository). The server-level password is not required to retrieve information about which repositories are mounted and running on the server.

As for the second part of your question, 5.5.41.xx is not compatible with 5.5.42.xx -- you will need to upgrade your components to the same version to get things working correctly. There is probably a failure occuring when attempting to retrieve the mounted/running repositories that you're not seeing, because of the difference in version.

Hope this helps,
