Known Issues

Error occurs during platform registration.

The following error occurs during the platform registration: Migration agent failed while executing command 'getPlatformXML' with error code #ErrorDuringPlatformInfoCollecting: No value given for one or more required parameters


The reason of this error may be a wrong delimiter that is used for Jet Text sources. Ensure that the registry value "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Jet\4.0\Engines\Text\Format" is "CSVDelimited".
