Error running FSA

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I get errors when I run fsa archiving task, happens only with large files. This is from the report:

"*** Error *** - There is insufficient disk space to complete operation. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80030070 (STG_E_MEDIUMFULL))"

EV 9.0.2 connecting with cifs to Hitachi Hcp ver

There is a lot of space left (4 TB) in the Hcp.

I am trying to archive a 75 gb file, and temp area on the server has 170 gb of free space.

Any ideas?

What kind of file is it?
It could be that it's the indexable item part it's trying to create and it's just running out of memory to do it

You may want to run a quick procmon to see exactly where it's attempting to write to

It´s a .bak file.

Run a dtrace on:

Id    Name                             Detail     Include Events
22  - EvFsaArchivingTask               Verbose    Yes        
52  - FSARunNow                        Verbose    Yes        

When I run the task it creates the file in temp folder then nothing happens.

Output from dtrace log:

Events repeats every 10 min until archive of file failes with following error from the report.

*** Error *** - There is insufficient disk space to complete operation. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80030070 (STG_E_MEDIUMFULL))

In Procmon what columns should I look at?

I would expect to see some files created in the VSA temp folder.  Is that the temp folder you are referencing? 

You could also monitor memory usage for processes in task manager. 

I am not sure I have seen a file this large be archived with FSA.  I have seen files of many GB in size get archived without issue. 

As JesusWept3 stated it could also be an issue with attempting to index the item.

In the end this errors was caused by insufficient diskspace :)
