I'm currently looking into the capability if VSC for VMware, one of the features I'm currently unable to get working is the rapid cloning ability. I've installed version 4 of VSC on our vCenter server but when I try to start a clone I get the attached errors in the NetApp logs which I've been unable to discover the cause of. I have tried to look into whether any configuration is needed but I could not find any information regarding this. I don't have a large amount of experience with NetApp so it's possible I've missed something important out since I've not been able to find any one else who has run into this issue when searching, any nudge in the right direction would be very much appreciated.

Is flex_clone licensed on your storage controller? I can't tell from the attached doc but if you attach the entire log file we should be able to figure out exactly why this is failing for you.

I see the following in the logs: "Clone operation failed to start: Volume or maxfiles exceeded max allowed for SIS." This is displayed if the volume is, or has been, too large to enable deduplication. You can check the maximum deduplication limits in TR-3505.
