Rebuilding the index after adding a custom metadata field results in this message, Error "E3-0033 (VDK): Bad field name <xMetadata> in <PathToBulkloadFile>" (Doc ID 726364.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 05, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 7.0 to [Release Stellent to 10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After creating a metadata field for testing, selecting "Updade Database Design" works perfectly.  Then after clicking on "Rebuild Index," the content server output showed this warning:

ErrorCheck Warn E3-0033 (VDK): Bad field name xField_Name in /export/xxxx1/stellent/search/index2/bulkload/xxxx.txt"

There are no errors in the error logs, just this one in the system output. Is this an error that indicates the rebuild will not be successful?
