SMVI 1.0 Restore Failure

Team --

I have several Partners testing SMVI 1.0, but unable to restore VMDKs with whitespaces in their name after removing them within VirtualCenter.

See error below ( C:\Program Files\NetApp\SMVI\server\log\server.log 😞

ERROR - Storage system error: Invalid argument

ERROR - FLOW-11019: Failure in RestoreAction: Storage system error: Invalid argument

java.lang.RuntimeException: Storage system error: Invalid argument

More specifically, the error output from the GUI:

OS Version=5.2

=== ERROR ===


=== MESSAGE ===

Error restoring backed up entity

=== DETAILS ===

Storage system error: Invalid argument

I appears to throw an exception for directory creation (upon restore) if your VM's path is similar to:

"/vol/myFlexVol/My Virtual Machine"

See error here:

ZEPHYR-10003: ZAPI call "file-create-directory" to "" returned error: Invalid argument (13114)

Please advise on workaround and/or point-release bug fix.

Re: SMVI 1.0 Restore Failure


I see this is an old post now. Were you able to find help?

This is a new issue to me. My suggestion would be to open an NGS case. They are going to ask you to run a tool to collect all of the logs that we need.
