MDS.ini getting blank

Hi Experts,

I am working on SAP MDM 7.1 SP08. During server restart, the MDS.ini file has become blank

Whereas there is no issue with MDIS.ini & MDSS.ini

As a workaround, i replaced the blank MDS.ini file with the backup MDS.ini which i had and restarted all the servers (MDS,MDIS,MDSS)

Again the MDS.ini is getting blank & MDIS.ini , MDSS.ini is unaffected

Since the MDS.ini is blank, there is no repositories found in the MDM Console and no operations can be made

Please advice how to resolve this issue

    Dear Antony,

    Can you do one thing. try to create new repository in you MDM server and see if repository information is populated in mds.ini file. Also check that your repositories are not unmounted .

      Hi Vaibhav,

      Thanks for the response. I have created a new repository and can see the entries on the MDS.ini files

      However the Accelerator, Report,Archieve is blank & distribution directory is missing

      I have updated those entries & added distribution directory.

      The issue is resolved and system is up and running

      Thanks for the guidance
