error -2059898879 writing to temp file.


WFA 2.1RC1, Certified command "Create qtree" failed with error

error -2059898879 writing to temp file.

And quotas file on vFiler also got messed up.

Before this workflow, quotas file was

rdfile /vol/filer01_root/.snapshot/hourly.0/etc/quotas

#Auto-generated by setup Fri Oct 25 06:50:32 CDT 2013

/vol/vol_abc_14315_56771/b2b_stbatchrepository_vol_abc_14315_56771      tree    62914560K       -       -       56623104K       -

After this workflow, it looks like

rdfile /vol/filer01_root/etc/quotas
#Auto-generated by setup Fri Oct 25 06:50:32 CDT 2013

/vol/vol_abc_16534_65531/xyz_iaas_mv_audit_vol_abc_16534_65531  tree    10485760K       -       -       9437184K        -

It replaced the earlier qtree entry with two "_" and added new entry for the qtree being created.

Any clue on what this error means ? In which situation it would remove previous qtree entry and put two "-"  ?

Here is the log

I think I found the reason. There must be some special character (or the way I saved quotas file by using wrfile for the first qtree) caused the quotas file mess up while creating second qtree in that vFiler.
