What is wrong with TSLOAD - dealing with Date formats
the raw data file is in this format - 1/28/2017; 1/14/2017
the tsload command has --date_time_format '%m/%d/%Y'
The target column is declared as "DATETIME"
The TSLOAD is always so buggy :)

Lokesh - it's not clear from your question if you have two dates or not. Is "1/28/2017; 1/14/2017" all in the same column? Because that is two dates and would not match your pattern, which would be expecting just "1/28/2017", for example.
Also, I'd suggest having this column be a DATE and not DATETIME if you aren't going to be putting times in the data. It will make things easier with formatting.
