Resolution

The problem is due to the Data Insight Login credentials added into the DLP console -> System -> Settings -> Data Insight

In some cases the credentials were correct but it failed due the wrong syntax.

The correct syntax for the "username" field is:

DOMAIN\username

Be sure to type the Data Insight domain in UPPER CASE, for example 2008R2-DI-MGMT\administrator
