" --t" reported duplicate ldom guest metadata as error: ERRROR: File /guests/<UUID>/virtimage.xml is of size 0 Bytes! (Doc ID 2590649.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 12, 2023

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Ops Center - Version 12.3.0 to 12.4.0 [Release 12.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Note in this document you will find string which represents an actual ldom guest Universal Unique Identifier (UUID)


While running ` --troubleshoot` on a control domain (cdom) we saw the following errors:

# /var/opt/sun/xvm/OCDoctor/ --troubleshoot

ERROR: There is an issue within the following Library:
  Library Name: Local Storage Library (<HOSTNAME>)
  Library Path: /guests
  Issue: File /guests/<UUID>/virtimage.xml is of size 0!
  Recommendation: Use the tool .../OCDoctor/toolbox/ to analyze the issue in detail.

While running the advised command (from above) we saw error:

# /var/opt/sun/xvm/OCDoctor/toolbox/

Summary of Library /guests/:
Library name: Local Storage Library (<HOSTNAME>)
library.xml contains 1 VirtImages elements
total sum of image subdirs: 1
subdirs with a virtimage.xml file: 0
bestimpl subdirs: 1

ERRROR: File /guests/<UUID>/virtimage.xml is of size 0 Bytes!
  This could have been caused by NFS-Server outages/issues.
  Use an existing good virtimage.xml file as template to manually recreate
  the broken virtimage.xml file or open a SR to get this resolved.

Further details of observed findings:
image <UUID> does not exist !
WARNING: image <UUID>/ does not contain a file virtimage.xml, looks to be a leftover


 One potential cause noted below.

If Ops Center agent is unconfigured while cdom host is still member of a server pool the meta data for an agent is not cleared from the NFS meta data share.   Upon agent configuration the guest meta data is modeled in the local /guests location.    This meta data can end up inconsistent as only one instance should exist.
