The stand alone client application phonetic key populator located in the path utils/phoneticKeyPopulator, is no longer required and therefore is not supported.
This tool was designed to populate phonetic keys for databases that do not contain phonetic keys. Since the MDM phonetic keys feature was introduced in version 7.0, the tool is no longer required for MDM versions post 7.0.
