Intermittent System.IO.FileNotFoundException from Get-NaHostDisk and Get-NaHyperV

I have a script that runs hourly inside our monitoring platform and occasionally (script runs once an hour, condition occurs once every few days) I get this exception

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)

from either of these iterations:

foreach($disk in Get-NaHostDisk)

{}


foreach($disk in (Get-NaHyperV $vm.Name).Storage)

{}

It seems to self-resolve the next time the script runs and it happens on multiple servers (all running SMHV).  Any ideas why?

Re: Intermittent System.IO.FileNotFoundException from Get-NaHostDisk and Get-NaHyperV

Do you have disks adding/removing or moving between servers on a regular basis?

The next time you see that, please run this command and paste the output here:

    

     $Error[0] | fl -force

That'll give us a stack trace with more info to debug.  Thanks!

It took a few weeks for the condition to return, but as requested:

Re: Intermittent System.IO.FileNotFoundException from Get-NaHostDisk and Get-NaHyperV

I frequently get the exact same error when running Get-NaHostDisk.  Running a second time generally works.  But this delays things significantly.

Here is the stack trace I get:

And here is some Powershell I have written to get past the issue for the time being.

$retries = 3

$success = $false

while ((-not $success) -and ($retries -gt 0))

{

    $retries -= 1

    "Attempting to run [Get-NaHostDisk -DataOntap].  $retries retries remaining."

    try

    {

        $NaHostDisks = Get-NaHostDisk -DataOntap

        $success = $true

    }

    catch

    {

        "ERROR::$($_.Exception.ToString())`nWhile executing Get-NaHostDisk."

    }

}

 

if (-not $success)

{

    throw "Unable to get the HostDisk mapping from the NetApp."

}

A better solution to this would be appreciated.
