vVol creation error for .vSphere-HA protected folder

Hello,

 

is anybody else facing with error when starting up a VM on the vVol datastore? I have an error failing to create .vSphere-HA folder for HA protected machine list.

From VASA provider log the message as follows:

Caused by: com.netapp.offtap3.ontap.ApiFailedException: Invalid VM name: _vSphere_HA. VM names must be between 1 and 254 characters in length. The first letter must be one of A-Z or a-z. The remaining characters must be A-Z, a-z, 0-9, space or valid ASCII punctuation. (errno=13001)

Does anybody knows how to solve that, or is there a "secret" patch for this issue?

The .vSphere-HA folder is created automatically by vSphere and it is not the VM!

Thanks for response
