We are having an issue with ingesting metadata from Geodata services into Geoportal 1.1.1 from ArcGIS Server for Java 9.3.1 SP1 and 10 SP2. Our SDE (ArcSDE for Oracle 9.3.1 SP1 x64) holdings are large with about 15,000 feature classes. I have tried direct connects and application connections. At first we were having timeout issues between Geoportal and ArcGIS Server, but I have eliminated that problem. Now the synchronization just runs and runs in Geoportal and Tomcat eventually kicks the bucket. During this process no metadata is getting ingested into Geoportal.
