FSA archiving task creates very large log files – 7.1GB in size
I have a customer with EV 9.0.2 1061 with only FSA configured.
Over the past few months the following errors are displayed the log file whenever the archiving task is run.
This is not a valid placeholder file. Ignoring this file. Element not found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070490)
The files which the error is logged against vary each time.
Twice a week on average the archiving task log file grows to over 7GB in size and the EV event log has an entry
which states the archiving task completed with over 11million errors.
On several occasions this has caused the EV server C drive has run out of free space and therefore stopped all the EV services. On the last occasion the issue occurred part way through the archiving task run which shot one of the indexes to pieces.(this has now been repaired thankfully)
The following Symantec technotes / workarounds have been applied
Problem files have been restored from the archive using FSAUtility – no change
HOWTO56261 - FSA FIX Offline utility - no errors found
TECH77221 - PreCreateOverwritten Value = 1 - applied, no change
TECH165458 - Update Placeholder Service and EVMF.SYS files on FSA target server, no change
TECH168167 - Read Only file error from DVDs etc - not all files giving errors are Read Only
There was an overlap between the EV archiving task and the BE backup job. This has now been removed.
The Partition collection jobs (3) have been rescheduled to avoid
- Each other.
- Backup jobs
- Archiving task runs
I would grateful of any suggestions anyone has.
