      Hi Mahesh,

      Thank you.

      It looks like the server issue or the browser issue. Are you using IE. Some of the features of portal will work only in IE.

      Regards,

      Suman

          Hi Mahesh,

          Some of the services might not be running. Involve your basis team to analyze the default trace for the error or try restarting the portal server.

          Regards,

          Suman
