Hi Tom-

I turned on the metadata logging per your instructions. The metadata now
appears to be refreshing - restarting Tomcat seems to have fixed the issue
(at least temporarily). Thanks for your help!

Hi Jonathan,

What is the error message in the logs?

Do you mean a change to InCommon metadata? Well, the metadata aggregate
continues to grow (it is now more than 38MB) but other than that, there have
been no changes that would affect your V2 deployment.

Yes, see this wiki page for advice how to Protect Against Failed Metadata

Hope this helps,
