Is this addressed by your managed disk/snapshot work?

Comment 3 Jerry Keselman 2017-09-11 20:55:37 UTC
I don't think so.  I am running SSA on 4 different Windows VMs that are completing but I am seeing filesystem errors in the log on some of them.  Also some issues with too much data throughput in a short amount of time - probably because I'm running them all concurrently - which could result in data missing.  This will require further investigation.

Comment 4 Dave Johnson 2017-09-21 14:36:27 UTC
Brad, please weigh in on how big of a deal this is.  We set priority to medium but fear it should be higher.

Comment 5 Dave Johnson 2017-09-21 15:25:19 UTC
Satyajit, just to be clear, this only affects Azure?  The application lists are successfully pulled from windows VMs on saw VMware or RHEV?

I spoke to Brad, he wants us confirm its not a specific OS (Jerry's comment 3 seems to indicate that) and that it is isolated to Azure.

Comment 7 Jerry Keselman 2017-09-22 16:43:12 UTC
Again just to be clear - this is not an issue that occurs on *all* Windows VMs regardless of provider type.  Needs to be investigated certainly.  It would be nice to determine what the characteristics are for the Windows systems exhibiting this issue.

Comment 11 Jerry Keselman 2017-11-17 17:52:23 UTC fixes this issue.  This may be showing up in various ways in other open BZs as well - will have to search through my list.

Comment 12 Jerry Keselman 2017-11-20 19:03:08 UTC allows the most recent GEM version to be used which is now 0.2.4 which has been pushed out.
