Did you try to use only the site URL?
Is this a local or LDAP/AD user?
Did you get this fixed as we are having the same issue?
Are you using single sign on?
We are using OKTA to sign in to an application into which we are embedding tableau charts

Here we use KeyCloak with SAML2 to sign in to Tableau Server, but to use the TABCMD we need to sign in with a local user (with his local password). Have you tried with local credentials?
Thanks for the quick response Bruno.
Are you using TabMigrate or TabCmd?
What do you mean by local credentials?

The time I used TabMigrate I had the impression that it uses TABCMD on the background (I might be wrong).
About the credentials. At least using keycloak (I don't know about other Single Sign On applications) the user is local (created on tableau server) and the Sign-in application get the username, check the enterprise users database (LDAP or similar) and return a ticket to tableau giving ok to log-in. The user is still local but checks auth credentials in other place. So it is possible to create a local password for this user. It will not affect the password in LDAP, and will be used only when not redirected to the single sign on application (like using tabcmd). I don't know if is the same case to you, but I hope it helps.

Thank you so much, you have made my day, i tried what you suggested above, changing the password in tableau server and i was able to login to TabMigrate.
I can download a site inventory just as expected.
Now I am onto the real work with downloading a site and then changing the datasource it looks at - do you have any experience of doing this?

Glad it helped.
When you publish the data source it will ask for you to enter the credentials (if it is a database or something like that), in this step you can edit the connection. Or you can go to the Daqtasource tab, select More Actions and edit the connection.
