File creation error while provisioning virtual machines on VVol datastores

Contributors netapp-asubhas


Cannot create virtual machine using the default storage virtual machine (SVM) or any mixed storage virtual machine (SVM) that has both IPv6 and IPv4 data LIFS configured.


The issue occurs because the default vs0 has both IPv6 and IPv4 data LIFs, and is not a purely IPv4 datastore.

Corrective action

You can provision a virtual machine with vs0 using the following steps:

  1. Use System Manager application to disable all the IPv6 LIFs .

  2. Rediscover the cluster.

  3. Provision a virtual machine on the VVol datastore on which the provisioning was failing.

    The virtual machine is successfully provisioned.
