Hi All,

Please advice on this.

Hi Naga,


what user ID are you using for running the migration? Are you using sasadm@saspw, or any other unrestricted user?

One of the errors you are receiving is a 403, which is typically an indication for permission problems.


i understand you are getting this error during the SAS Content Server migration? Or are you referring to the Content Manager Server in DataFlux??


If Content Server, could you please go to SAS Management Console, Server Manager, and VALIDATE the Content Server?

(right mouse click on Content Server, VALIDATE).

In case it would come back with an error message, what error are you getting?
