Resolution:
This could be due to wrong ServiceDesk Manager details in Catalyst configuration files

1) Make sure the UserName case in CA ServiceDesk Manager matches in the configuration files

2) Remove files from following folders

    \CA\Catalyst\CatalystConnector\container\nls-store
    \CA\Catalyst\CatalystConnector\container\registry-cache

3) Restart CA Catalyst Container services
