A: The issue was with the hostname PRODSERVER_SD06. PDF Automation Server uses RMI and the server hostname for communication between client and server. The Internet standards for protocols mandate that hostname labels may contain only the ASCII letters ‘a’ through ‘z’ (in a case-insensitive manner), the digits ‘0’ through ‘9’, and the hyphen(‘-‘). Changing the computer name to not include the underscore (_) character resolved the issue.
