    Hi,

    Which version of MDM? What is your OS? What database are you using?

    Does the repository exist and you are trying to overwrite it with the archive or are you unarchiving a new repository? Have you got the SQL logs and other logs..

    Regards

    Hi Manish,

    Take a fresh archive from the source repository. and before doing this, please check>Repair any fatal/non-fatal errors in the repository.

    Hi Manish,

    If you using OS other than Windows then you need to set the file permissions e.g. in case of Unix set the permissions to 777 and then try to unarchive.

    If you are on Windows then there must be some problem in a2a file itself.
