A failure row file is a text file that is saved in the folder where you have saved your KJB files. Perform the necessary steps to remove the error provided for the failure rows in the failure rows file, and then import the data by using the following steps.
The following Pentaho packages provide a transformation file in the FailureRowsInput folder. You can use this transformation file for importing users from the failure rows file to the Salesforce organization.

|Duplicate LAN Endpoint entries are created in BMC Remedyforce CMDB.||BMC Client Management|
In BMC Remedyforce Summer 15 Patch 1 and earlier versions, when you imported LAN Endpoint data from BMC Client Management, duplicate LAN endpoint entries might have been created in BMC Remedyforce CMDB. This duplicate data was created because of the following factors:
In BMC Remedyforce Summer 15 Patch 1 and later versions, instead of the Network Interface IP address, the MAC address is used as the unique source identifier for the LAN endpoints imported from BMC Client Management, and new duplicate LAN endpoint entries are not created in BMC Remedyforce CMDB.
To resolve this issue, you must install the latest Pentaho package for BMC Client Management released with BMC Remedyforce Summer 15 Patch 1 or later. Also, you must manually delete any existing duplicate LAN endpoint entry on the Remedyforce CMDB. For more information, see Deleting configuration items.
|The HTTP Status 404 error is displayed when trying to connect to Salesforce.||All|
Ensure that your Pentaho transformations connect to https://login.salesforce.com/services/Soap/u/<API version> instead of https://www.salesforce.com/services/Soap/u/<API version>.
Starting from January 1, 2016, Salesforce retired www.salesforce.com as an API endpoint. For more information, see the announcement on BMC Communities website. To view a video demonstration of how to update your Pentaho transformations, see Salesforce API Endpoint Retirement.
BMC Remedyforce has updated the API endpoint in the Pentaho packages that are currently available on the BMC Communities website.
