Did I hit bug 405310: SMVI: Null Pointer Exception when SMVI cannot properlytrack a vCenter task

Hi Gurus

I am installing/configuring SMVI in customer environment (ESX4update1 + VC4.0).   customer use iSCSI LUN as VMFS datastore.  backup is OK but it met errors when do single VM restore.

SMVI log is as following:

I am not sure why VC could not complete the copy action.  I did several time manually file-moving at VC side.  it works.

Did I hit bug 405310: SMVI: Null Pointer Exception when SMVI cannot properlytrack a vCenter task?  why "copy file" operation is failure?

Any input are appreciated.

Thanks and Best Regards!

Hi

For the fix to that particular BURT you  would need to upgrade to the 2.0 Patch. Could you please log a case so that we can verify if that is indeed the issue. Please upload all the server logs as well.

I already raise a case#2001472430.   what's the server log?  is it SMVI server log?  in my original post, it's there.  if anyelse log need,  Please let me know.
