Hello
While trying to copy a database from one db server to another I encouter this error:

Message: ERROR : errorCode=-1073548784 description=Executing the query "CREATE USER [U_MSP_DAL_Cert] FOR CERTIFICATE [MSP_..." failed with the following error: "Cannot find the certificate 'MSP_DAL_Cert', because it does not exist or you do not have permission.". Possible failure reasons: Problems with the query, "ResultSet" property not set correctly, parameters not set correctly, or connection not established correctly.

I do see a U_MSP_DAL_Cert user in the security container for the source database and the user name: is listed as a Certificate Name.
I have never worked with Certificate names before so I am a little lost on how to replicate this over to the new server.

Thanks in advance

Don't use the database copy wizard to copy databases. I know it sounds weird, but it isn't the best tool to use to copy databases.

Use BACKUP/RESTORE method instead. Or detach/attach.
