  • Thanks for the links :)  .I will check them .

    One more strange behavior is that after restarting the server, MDS works normally now. I didn't perform any changes to get rid of the problem and just restarted.

    What is the connection here between MDS and server restart which solved the problem? Because everytime the server cannot be restarted to make MDS work :(

    Any suggestions / solutions ?
