How to resolve RQMCopyUtility RestException 400 error?

RQM 4.0.4.  RQMCopyUtility v4.0.4. Both source and destination are RQM 4.0.4.  Source is Tomcat, Destination is WAS.

Could the & in the source project name be causing this trouble?
Running the command below, I am getting a HTTP response code 400, RestException.  I suspect the INFO messages are informing me of a problem where followRedirects is not allowed, but it is not clear which server it is talking about.  It gives the message twice so perhaps both of them are not allowing followRedirects.  Since it is an INFO instead of an error, I am seeking confirmation.

java -jar RQMCopyUtility.jar -l=importlog.txt -us=issrc@sourceserver.com -pws=password -s="https://sourceserver.com:9447/qm/service/com.ibm.rqm.integration.service.IIntegrationService/resources/SourceProject+2012+&+beyond+QM" -ud=Vapt_user1 -pwd=password -d="https://destserver.co.in:9443/qm/service/com.ibm.rqm.integration.service.IIntegrationService/resources/Test_Project1_QM"

The "&" could be the issue here; try replacing it with "%26"
If you go to https://<server>:9443/qm/service/com.ibm.rqm.integration.service.IIntegrationService/projects you'll see that alias for the project area in question; you can verify if the "&" is encoded

Thanks, that page revealed I needed to use InfoSphere+MDM+2012+%26amp%3B+beyond+QM

I never would have guessed that combination!
