PSIcapture Migration Troubleshooting: Alternate Access Mappings SharePoint migration error


When using the field CopyIntoItems to upload files from a client to a server, instead of its original intended purpose to copy files between two SharePoint servers, you may encounter an error:

For example, by default a SharePoint server will only have:
