The value of the Server URL specified after the "-s" parameter is not in the correct format.



CA Service Desk Manager 14.1.04
Windows operating system


The format of the Server URL must be according to the online help documentation.

For example, in step #2 of the "Issue" section of this article, to avoid the issue, use the following command instead:
grloader -s http://localhost:8080 -i grloader_sample_spreadsheet.xlsx -u servicedesk -p <mypassword> -a -E

Note that the Server URL that follows the "-s" parameter contains two forward-slash characters (//) instead of two back slash characters (\\).
