  • Tableau Server
  • Tableau Desktop


Option 1:
  1. If the Tableau Server cluster is a multi-node installation then try changing the Filestore to a different node.
Option 2:
  1. Check with your IT team for any security software scanning the Tableau Server related folders.  Example: In the Fiddler tracing from the Tableau Desktop, and if Cloud Flare is the security software, in the response we could find CF-Ray and ask the Cloud Flare team to investigate further and remove the blocking.


Security Software could block the connections to a Virtual Connection which are extracts in the Tableau Server.
