Validating Media Object metadata
Avalon release 3.3 includes a new requirement that metadata values Creation Date, Copyright Date and Date Issued conform to the Extended Date Time Format.

In addition to identifying invalid dates it identifies all records with ANY invalid metadata. Run the tool by executing the following command:
Any records identified as having validation errors should be fixed so that they will be indexed. After fixing those records, reindex by running the following:

And a tool is provided in Release 3.3 that helps clean up Matterhorn workspace further. More can be learned here.
