Hi Forum, 

# EVENT ID 40966, (401) Unauthorized from CELERRA

# We have a problem after upgrading Enterprise Vault from 8.02 to 8.03
# Config: 1 EV server, windows 2003 SP2 with Fileplaceholder service, Target: CELERRA, Storage: EMC Centerra
# Problem/description: We’re Unable to add new targets with a policy containing a ‘placeholder’ (not url),
we are actually able to add targets with policies containing just an URL and not the placeholder.
we Need to be using Checkpoint file, and we need to be able to create placeholders on the CELERRA unit!
The Deployment scanner runs fine, and we have full admin rights and read/write to shares on CELERRA!

# We've been through these articles without any luck:
