After publishing a workbook containing published data sources with Tabcmd, the following error may occur when performing an extract refresh:
com.tableausoftware.nativeapi.dll.DataSourceException: No Tableau Server user found. class DataSourceException Unable to connect to the server "<hostname or IP address>". Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested database.
When publishing with tabcmd, ensure the username and password of the tableau server user is passed and saved on the tabcmd command by using the "--save-db-password" flag.
