Can't create VMware snapshots after upgrading NAC/Purview to v8

  • 1.  Can't create VMware snapshots after upgrading NAC/Purview to v8

    Posted 06-19-2017 04:05
    After upgrading our various Extreme VMs (Control and Analytics) to version 8.0.2, Veeam backups were failing because they couldn't create a VMware snapshot. Some googling found that it's an issue relating to the Ubuntu upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04 that leaves a reference to '/var/lib/ureadahead/debugfs/tracing' in '/etc/mtab' after rebooting. Another reboot fixes the problem, or you can just edit '/etc/mtab' and remove the line with ureadahead in it.

    Thanks James,

    I expect we'll see more of this.

    I've moved this information into the knowledgebase:
