MetadataCrawler produces empty metadata xml-files

Hi all

I use the MetadataCrawler to make xml metadatafiles of two raster maps (Kwel_gem.asc, openheid2009_mean.asc) and a vector map (contour_nl.shp). All goes well without any error or warning (except on the tif overview) until at the point of publication the MetadataCrawler suddenly notices that the xml-file that itself has generated is empty. See the log file:

What has gone wrong here? What does it mean when MetadataCrawler reports that the "XML document was not properly created"? Has anybody experienced similar problems?

I'm thankful for any hint!

Hi,

Could you please give us your metadata crawler setting screenshot? Which will be helpful for us to address your issue.

Best regards
