I downloaded the converter pdf2pdfa to try before you buy the license.
I installed in d:\pdf2pdfa_cmd, the command I write is:
pdf2pdfa.exe sample1.pdf prova.pdf
I get the message:
You have 264 time to evaluate "VeryDOC PDF to PDF/A Converter Command Line" product, you may purchase a full version from https://www.verydoc.com site.
but the file prova.pdf is not exist.
How is my error?
Another question: this converter my be installed inti the linux Redhat server?
We suggest you may add "-mode 2" parameter to try again, this parameter will analyze all objects in PDF file, it will check and repair all objects in PDF file and arrange them to comply with the PDF/A compliance, this parameter is great to process various kinds of PDF files over the world, you can use this parameter like below,
pdf2pdfa.exe -mode 2 "sample1.pdf" "_sample1-pdfa.pdf"
pdf2pdfa.exe -mode 2 "sample2.pdf" "_sample2-pdfa.pdf"
pdf2pdfa.exe -mode 2 "sample3.pdf" "_sample3-pdfa.pdf"
pdf2pdfa.exe -mode 2 "sample4.pdf" "_sample4-pdfa.pdf"
pdf2pdfa.exe -mode 2 "sample5.pdf" "_sample5-pdfa.pdf"
pdf2pdfa.exe -mode 2 "sample6.pdf" "_sample6-pdfa.pdf"
pdf2pdfa.exe -mode 2 "sample7.pdf" "_sample7-pdfa.pdf"
If you still can't get it work, please send to us your sample PDF file in question, after we check your PDF file, we will figure out a solution to you asap.
also, "VeryDOC PDF to PDF/A Converter Command Line" is a Windows product, it doesn't support Linux Redhat server, if you wish get it work on Linux system, we will provide a solution to you at later.

Thanks for your message, you can convert any number of PDF files to PDF/A files at one time, for example,
for %F in (D:\temp\*.pdf) do pdf2pdfa -mode 2 “%F” “C:\out\%~nxF.pdf”
