Error "Internal Server Error. Missing or Invalid Argument" Publishing to Tableau Server using Kerberos over Non-Standard HTTP Port

When you try to publish to Tableau Server, the following errors are received in Tableau Desktop: 
  • Publish Failure
  • Internal Server Error. Missing or Invalid Argument


  • Tableau Server 10.0.1 - 10.0.3
  • Kerberos over Non-Standard port 


Option 1:

Upgrade to Tableau Server 10.0.4 or a newer version. For more information, see Upgrade Tableau Server.

Option 2:

As a workaround, use standard HTTP port 80 for communication.


This behavior is a result of known issue 579496, which has been corrected in more recent versions:
Publishing to a Tableau Server configured to use Kerberos authentication and a non-standard port would fail with an error. In some cases, attempting to publish a second time would succeed.
