Name-server importing wrong url?

Dear experts,

I am trying to import a track from NWDI so I can add development components to a software component in the track. The problem I am having is:

I keep getting this error " Syntax of '' is not valid : Invalid name: appropriate prefix not found; choose another name or another name server". We haven't had this problem in the past...When I go to CMS->Landscape Configurator and click on display development configuration button I get this configuration:

The url for name-server-url property is correct: http://xxxxxxxx:xxxxx/sld/cimom

But when I import to NWDS the url get's changed:


Another NWDS:

For some reason it is changing the naming server url on import to http://xxxxxx:xxxxx/sld/name and http://xxxxxxxx:xxxxx/sld. Any help is much appreciated.

    Hello Bradley,

    A few hints to resolve the problem:

    Namespace prefixes are not available in NWDS


    #1816503 - NWDS not identifying Vendor/Name Prefix defined in SLD

    • Hi Bradley,

      I did not fully read this conversation, but this is how it works in general.

      1. Name server is changed in SLD.

      2. Track "in CMS' webui -- Landscape Configurator" has to be re-saved in order to have the change reflected there (this is what you have done so far)

      3. NWDS development config has to be re-imported on client side. Otherwise it'll consider the old configuration, since after the first sync it creates a local file called ".confdef" and works from that one.

      So as a hint: if you have no open activities in your devconfig, you can even delete it from your NWDS and import it again that makes sure it uses the updated devconfig .

      There is also an "Update Development Configuration" option in the context menu of the Development Config in your NWDS, but if that would not work give it a try re-importing the development config eventually in a new NWDS workspace.

      I hope this helps.
