Ahmed,

This issue looks like it might have been caused by a known bug in the authentication module.
The bug has already been fixed and the fix will be part of the next release (3.2).
See https://fedora-commons.org/jira/browse/FCREPO-393 for more information about this issue.

If your error is caused by the above-mentioned bug, one temporary solution for you could be
to replace the CacheElement.class in your Fedora instance with the one provided as file
attachment on the FCREPO-393 tracker item.

Thanks,
- Kai

Betreff: [Fedora-commons-users] Authentication failed on massive ingest

Hello friends,
I am doing a massive ingest from big files. However, the ingestion is
interrupted after processing 1/2 a million records and while adding a
datastream. This datastream only contains a number and it is represented as
a plain-text.

Following is the error that I am receiving:
===================================================================
java.io.IOException: Upload failed: Unauthorized: <html><head>
<title>Fedora: 401 Unauthorized</title></head>     <body>

I would appreciate any insights.
