Attempts to add multiple storage servers to a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environment from the command line quickly may result in some servers not being accessible or displayed. 

In the following example, a System administrator attempts to add a number of storage servers to the VDI environment by opening 2 terminal sessions to the master server and adding one at a time from each session using the "vda provider-add-storage" command e.g.

# vda provider-add-storage -p,port=22,username=root,zfspool=default STO-VDI1

i.e one is added, right after the first.

After each set of servers are added, the "vda provider-list-storage" command is run to verify it was added successfully. If ths pattern is repeated, the VDI administrator may find that the command does not list the newly added storage server(s). When attempting to re-add it, it will fail with stating that it is already added e.g

# vda provider-add-storage -p,port=22,username=root,zfspool=default STO-VDI1
Error adding storage to desktop provider:
The ZFS pool 'default' on storage '' is a duplicate.

Subsequent attempts to remove it will result in the following condition:

# vda provider-remove-storage --zfspool=default STO-VDI1

Storage server with pool default not found. Use
the provider-list-storage subcommand to get the list of existing storage
for this desktop provider.
