SDW 6.0.1 - The lun may not be connected, because its mount point cannot be found


During snapshot creation which involves the rename of old snapshots, the server is reporting in Event Log the above message.  The lun is present on the server but when you go into MMC the lun is not visible.

When you browse the path to the lun from the run command (\\xxx\$$\lun.lun), you can see the lun file.  If you go back into the MMC, the lun appears.

Is this a bug or has anyone seen this?

Windows 2003 server x64.  FCP presented LUN via Snapdrive 6.0.1 and DSM.



Are there any errors prior to this message in the event logs?
