Hi @Khalid538 ,

For knowledge sharing purposes in case someone else experiences this issue, we found the root cause of the issue due to lack of disk space. 

If you are experiencing similar behavior, we recommend that you review your DSS data directory using the following command, and reviewing our documentation here:

du -sh <DATA_DIR>/* | sort -rh
Once some disk space is available, please try the macro again. If you are still experiencing the same issue, the root cause might be due to another issue and we recommend opening a support ticket or community post.
