"Data transfer error in MDS.: (Wrapped) UTF binary length"


I was using Ant to import a large number of files to the MDS.

Here is the output and the error received:
importMDSArtifact:   [delete] Deleting directory /u01/deploy/tmp/AIAMetaData    [mkdir] Created dir: /u01/deploy/tmp/AIAMetaData      [zip] Building zip: /u01/deploy/tmp/AIAMetaData/AIAMetaData_mds.jar      [zip] Building zip: /u01/deploy/tmp/AIAMetaData/     [echo] SAR File: /u01/deploy/tmp/AIAMetaData/     [echo] oracle.home = /u01/app/oracle/middleware/Oracle_SOA1

This is the second time in the last 12 months that I encountered this error. I can't remember how I resolved it the first time. However, the solutions this time was:

1. Bounce all SOA managed servers and try again (e.g., soa_server1, soa_server2, etc.)

Application versions:
