When checking for new comments on a PDF that I was successfully able to upload to SharePoint Online, I receive the error message, "Could not get new comments. Adobe Acrobat did not get a response from the server. Try again later or contact your system administrator." I am able to successfully ping the server (126.96.36.199). I am also unable to see new comments for all other previously uploaded PDFs that were uploaded to SharePoint Online. Other users in my company are able to access and comment on the PDFs.
I have the same issue (can't access 188.8.131.52).
Dropped that address into a browser and got ...
<h2>Our services aren't available right now</h2><p>We're working to restore all services as soon as possible. Please check back soon.</p>Ref A: EF97D03194D445D79977C4C957C0B943 Ref B: BL2EDGE0122 Ref C: 2018-10-09T17:03:41Z
So... hopefully it'll get better 'as soon as possible'
I'm having the exact same thing, I'm guessing it should be a host-name in there and not the IP address that we are seeing.
Strangely, they're able to post comments successfully, but not see any other comments.
Sorry to hear about the inconvenience caused. From how long you are you experiencing this problem? Is it with the latest update of Acrobat?
Please share the exact version of Acrobat you are working on. Open Acrobat>Help>About Acrobat DC Release Notes | Adobe Acrobat, Reader
Acrobat Desktop refreshes the comments automatically after few seconds (~15-30 or less) if review document is opened.
And the manual refresh- Acrobat Desktop will sync the comments on switching to Home View or document in another tab or context board (where all the reviewers are listed) and then back to review document.
You may also download Acrobat DC updates from here: Adobe software and product updates
Let us know If none these are solving this issue. We will look into this further and escalate it to the concern team.
A reviewer I work with is also experiencing this issue for about a week (give or take a few days). He is using version 2019.008.20074.
I hadn't noticed rob's last sentence.
I just tried to publish a comment on one of the shared reviews that I had initiated earlier. And yep... it appears to publish.
However, I *still* can't receive new comments ("Could not get new comments. Adobe Acrobat did not get a response from the server...").
Has the 'concern team' been able to replicate the issue, or find out anything about what's going on?
This is causing a major amount of grief.
We are very sorry for taking so long to provide the resolution to this problem. This issue has been escalated further and the concerned team will be looking into it.
As soon as we will get an update on this, will get back to you.
Thank you for your patience.
Thanks for reporting the issue and apologies for the inconvenience caused!
We are looking into the issue. We will let you know once we plan to deliver the fix in one of the future releases.
We are experiencing the very same issue and I was wondering if any progress had been made since your last post a month ago.
Would you happen to have an update or an ETA for a fix release?
In our case the faulty update was october 2nd (1900820071). Everything was working fine before that ( up until 1801120063 included)
Please see my elaborated comment above, as it seems there's more to this issue then it seems to be .
Yes, Acrobat will continue to support collaborative reviews via local servers/SharePoint or web.
To use the collaborative reviews via local servers/SharePoint or web, please follow the steps below-
-Launch Acrobat app
-Open Preferences (Use ctrl+k on Windows or cmd+k on Mac)
-Select "Reviewing" from left pane
-Uncheck the option "Share for review using the Adobe Document Cloud"
-Click "OK" to save and close the Preferences dialog
Now open any PDF and try "Send for Review", collaborative reviews workflow will start now.
Please let me know if you need more info.
I dug more after sending this out, and I unchecked the Document Cloud option. I've set up the SharePoint server again, then sent a document for review. The document was uploaded with success, and I have been able to add a comment, but when my pair tester opened and added a comment, the error message popped up. So the conclusion is that you can start a review, but servers are unable to collect and share the comments. Which breaks the actual collaborative process.
An ETA for this major bug fix would be great.
At my organization the problem only exists on Windows 10 based machines. Our Macintosh computers are having no issues. It appears that it may be a DNS issue. If you check the Tracker on Macintosh based systems you can see the tracker is reaching the share point online servers through a domain name and windows 10 computers are connecting via IP. We tested one machine rolling back updates before October (We had old install files on had for deployment). This issues is clearly related to updates that started rolling out in October. This is not a user issue it is an Adobe issue.
Users on Windows can post comments but only people on Macintosh computers can see posted comments from other users. I have tested this - I have both a windows based machine and a Macintosh machine. Settings on both machines are identical. The only difference was how the tracker was reaching the server as I mentioned above. There is no way that I have found to change the IP address to a domain. I tried altering my windows host file to direct that domain to the same ip with no luck. Pinging the domain name does return the same ip but I have seen protocols be picking about either domain names or ip's in the past.
This solution of changing the IP to domain was suggested by our sys admin too, but indeed, there is no way to change this in tracker. Maybe Adobe will think about fixing this too?
And yes, the issue is on Windows and started after an October update, as stated in other comments.
I tried your solution, but the document cloud check box was already unselected. Like the others, I can post a PDF to Sharepoint and publish comments. But as soon as I close the PDF and reaccess it, I get this error. Started in October, Windows 10, etc.
Same problem for us with Windows 10 since October. Works on Mac OS.
Adobe found the problem and came up with a registry fix, but they are still testing it to make sure there is no security problem.
You can open a case with the support department (this is what I did) and they will give you more information about the registry fix.
I've opened a case with Adobe Support (which was a bit of a challenge). I'm waiting to hear back on this registration fix but so far they've informed that the issue is under review. If anyone else has had any luck resolving this issue do let me know. The Shared Review PDFs on SharePoint were such a nice feature would like to move back to using that rather than trying to find Network Drives that everyone has access to.
I found a workaround for my version of this problem.
I had to clear the Adobe (SharePoint Login) Credentials from my local system. It would be nice if there was some kind of prompt when you can't connect to the Shared Review to try a new user name or password.
In effect I did the following:
Open Task Manager - close Adobe Collab Synch process & close Adobe Acrotray process.
Then cleared the registry credentials (from an earlier Adobe Forum Post):
Go into the Registry Editor to delete the cached credentials for Adobe.
Note in Adobe Acrobat Pro this is under Adobe > Acrobat > DC > Credentials .
Then when I reopened the Shared Review PDF I was able to connect to it and publish comments.
Ryan, I tried your fix with Adobe DC standard with no luck. Also the credentials do not appear to be located at HKCU>Software>Adobe>Acrobat>DC>Credentials
I did find something located at:
I removed all entries besides the default after clearing all adobe processes in task manager..
The problem was temporarily fixed for me by closing all adobe applications (including using task manager to close acrotray & adobe collabsynch). Then clearing the credentials in regedit. Then rebooting the system.
However I noticed on opening the Shared Review PDF this morning I'm once again getting the message cannot connect to server. As such this fix isn't reliable. I suspected the problem was incorrect credentials being passed to SharePoint but I'm not sure that's the case. Still haven't heard back on a fix from Adobe Support.
This is a huge problem for me right now. Some participants in a shared review (on a local server) are unable to publish comments due to server access issues as described above. This previously worked great , for years - but not any more apparently. In my opinion this is an urgent, critical issue that is delaying our projects and must be addressed as a high priority by Adobe.
We have the same exact issue but only on Windows 10 machines. All of our Windows 7 machines do not encounter this issue. For reference, we are running Adobe Acrobat Pro DC v2019.010.20069.
It's been 4 months since this bug has been reported. It was finally acknowledged 1 month ago "4262085". Can we please get an update. This is a major work flow disruption.
A registry protected fix has been released as part of the Adobe Acrobat and Reader official update (19.010.20091).
Please follow the steps to resolve this issue-
-Update Adobe Acrobat to the latest version(19.010.20091) if not done already(Help > Check for Updates)
-Open task manage and kill the processes “AdobeCollabSync.exe”
-Create the REG_SZ type key "tdisableHTTP2List" and set its value to "*.sharepoint.com" at the below path
(See the snapshot in of the created registry)
Now try your workflow and see if it resolves the issue. Please let us know in case of any concerns.
Thanks for your patience and support!
