I'm trying to run a CSW Harvest in GeoNetwork, but I get this error:
"gmd:MD_MetaData, csw: record" is not a valid value for QName
I'm using GeoNetwork 2.10.3 on Windows 7 64 bit and GeoServer 2.6.2

"gmd:MD_MetaData, csw: record"
Well, the error message is correct the quoted text is not a valid QName, as we can see from its definition:
QName ::= PrefixedName | UnprefixedName PrefixedName ::= Prefix ':' LocalPart UnprefixedName ::= LocalPart Prefix ::= NCName LocalPart ::= NCName
NCName ::= Name - (Char* ':' Char*) /* An XML Name, minus the ":" */
We have a
PrefixedName, the prefix is
gmd, we have an
LocalPart is therefore
MD_MetaData, csw: record which should be an
NCName but it is invalid because there is a colon after the csw.
