Unable to use other Macros - Children Display

So I just migrated my Confluence Server from one Datacenter to another. After trying to create a new page, I attempted to insert a 'Chlidren Display' macro found under 'Confluence content' which is under 'other macros'. It doesn't look like it does anything, but won't let me preview or publish. Here's the output from the atlassian.confluence.log:

Thanks for the log excerpt.

Please let me know, can you save pages without macros or does the error only appear when you try to insert a macro?

Macros are provided by plugins and a plugin cache can get out of sync during a move. If the issue only occurs with macros, please try the procedure described in: How to clear Confluence plugins cache

If no pages can be edited/saved, and you are running a version of Confluence above 6.0, please check the steps in Troubleshooting Collaborative Editing.

When you restart Confluence, please watch the logs during startup for any entries that start with ERROR and let me know of any that seem relevant to the issue.
