Hi,
I am trying to validate our Dataverse OAI-PMH (dataverse.no/oai) against two OAI-ÅMH validators, validator.oaipmh.com and oval.base-search.net but receive error messages.

I tried https://dataverse.no/oai/request?verb=Identify and got  "404 not found". When I remove "request" from the URL, https://dataverse.no/oai?verb=Identify, I receive some reasonable OAI response, but I still cannot get hits on a query to show all records:
I receive the same error messages when I try to validate dataverse.harvard.edu

NB! I have re-indexed our dataverse.

Anyone to help?

Cheers 
Obi

Hi Obi, you mentioned that you ran a reindex, which was my best guess as to the issue here. Can you post a screenshot of your Harvesting Server setup? It will help us troubleshoot.

Hi Obi, after taking a quick look at what we have set up for Harvard's Dataverse, can you try to remove the slash the end of the DOI link in your definition query and rerun? I'll also ask someone with a bit more experience in this area to take a look as well. Sorry to not be of more help!

Thanks Juan!

Obi, the last time we took a pass at OAI-PMH validation was in 4.6:


We haven't revisited it recently.
