Convert to Vmdk failed with exceeded the block cloning limit (64GB)

Hi,

I'd like to convert a 80G VHD to an VMDK with our Toolkit but it fails within an error:

> ConvertTo-NaVmdk Z:\drive_c.vhd

ConvertTo-NaVmdk : Clone operation failed to start: File restore or LUN clone operation exceeded the block cloning

limit (64GB)..

    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (Smiley Happy [ConvertTo-NaVmdk], ESIS_CLONE_MAX_BLKS

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : ApiException,DataONTAP.PowerShell.SDK.Cmdlets.HyperV.ConvertToNaVmdk

i do not know about an ontap limit. is it one or is it a cmdlet error/limit...?

Environment:

FAS3140HA

DOT 8.1.2P4 7-Mode

thanks

Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit 2.4.0.95

Re: Convert to Vmdk failed with exceeded the block cloning limit (64GB)

This issue is fixed in the latest version 3.0.1 (http://support.netapp.com/NOW/download/tools/powershell_toolkit/).

Thanks,
