Reason:

It is possible that your machine time clock is not synchronized correctly. A wrong time on your host machine where CSUPLOAD tool is executing, could cause this error.


Solution:

To solve this problem, please update your machine clock time correctly depend on your geographical location and then rerun the CSUPLOAD tool.

  • Hello Avkash

    Still no luck. I've changed the Time Zone to half a dozen different ones including the time zone I am in and then the one that I am trying to upload to "North Central US" and no option seems to work. I can't find anything on Google about it and have opened a Support Incident with Microsoft.
