Problem: The user receives an error in the Web Application Events log similar to the following:
A critical system operation failed: "OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/var/vixd_fuse/mount/<b>new</b>'" Check logs.
Cause: VMware vCenter Server and ESX/ESXi Server do not support VMs with one or more special characters in the display name.
A special character can be one of following:
%, &, *, $, #, @, !, \, /, :, *, ?, “, <, >, |, ;, ‘
A special character in the display name results in issues when querying the name using the vSphere Client. Ultimately, this causes Fusion to be unable to recognize the device, and it will be unable to replicate the VM.
Solution: The user will need to change the name of the VM to not include the special character(s) in the display name.
Once the vSphere Client is able to recognize the VM, the Axcient Virtual Manager (AVM) will be able to begin replicating.
