unable to import PDFs in MDM data manager tool

Hello,

I'm working with SAP MDM 5.5 SP5 Data Manager. I want to add some pdf files to this tool. So, I select PDFs table, and in the record panel I select the add option.

Finally I select Data group and all pdf files that I want to import, but the panel shows the following error message:

Y:\file.pdf: MDM Server Error

What could be the problem? Should I configure the MDM Server before to import?

Where could I get more information about it?

Best regards,

Marta.

    Hi Marta,

    Try the following:

    In the Console, right click on your repository and select the Properties option.

    Here under the PDF node, set the Allow Invalid PDFs option to Yes.

      Solved:

      To manually generate the thumbnail for one or more PDFs:

      1. In the Records pane, select the PDF record(s) whose thumbnails you

      want to generate.

      2. Right-click on one of the records and choose Generate Thumbnail from

      the context menu, or choose Objects > Generate Thumbnail from the

      main menu.

      3. MDM opens the Generating Thumbnails progress dialog to indicate the

      status as it generates the thumbnail for each of the PDFs.
