An error occured while creating the original attribute for

Hi All,

We encounter this error in "An error occured while creating the original attribute for " DMS very often when a user edits a file & tries to check in.

I searched the forums & realized that this is caused by the inconsistencies in the KPRO & DMS server and removing these

inconsistencies will repair this issue.

I have been deleting the inconsistencies using DMS reports DMS_KPRO_READ & DMS_KPRO_CHECK1 and it resolves the error

so the file is unlocked. But I haven't been able to figure out the ROOT cause of this issue.I couldn't find any information on the root cause of this issue. What can be done to fix this error permanently.

    Hi Neha,

    based on my experience this kind of inconsistency may occur if there is a connection problem to the content server for example. Unfortunately I never was able to reproduce such a scenario and create a new inconsistency.

    Please see also the SAP notes 1403231 and 942227 which might be useful to avoid such inconsistencies in the future.

    Best regards,

      Hi Sudhakar,

      Sorry for this very very late reply.

      As suggested, I have been removing the consistencies from the document. But, the users are asking for the root cause of this issue.

      I tried to recreate this in DEV and QAS environments also, but it never happened there.

      Hi Neha,

      Did updating the versions of SAPHTTP and SAPHTTA help you?

      If any body has any other ideas on finding the root cause, please let me know.

      Thank You.

    Hi Neha,

    How do we check the inconsistencies using these reports DMS_KPRO_CHECK1 & DMS_KPRO_READ ? And how do I correct it?

    Thank you

    • Hi Sudhakar,

      normally if you face such an issue you can use report DMS_KPRO_READ for the affected document info record to get the relevant LOIO- and PHIO-ID.

      In a second step you can execute report DMS_KPRO_CHECK1 to scan your content server or content repository for existing inconsistencies. Due to the set radio button the LOIO- or PHIO-ID entries are displayed in the result list.

      As soon as you got a result you can search with the ID noted down from the DMS_KPRO_READ result and check if this specific ID is in the list. For further information please see also the SAP note 906266.

      Best regards,
