WORM Storage ADS Incompatibility

Categories: XenServer, Physical Systems, Hyper-V, ADS, Storage, Alike v3


Due to the nature of WORM storage (write-once in particular), Alike cannot use storage devices that employ WORM technology for the Alike Data Store (ADS), such as Hitachi’s Content Platform (HCP).

Alike may encounter the following errors during a backup job:

  • Error: Rename AMB failed.
  • Error code 64, The specified network name is no longer available.
  • Read failed (pos.XXXXXXX, amt. XXXXXXX) on file \location\ with an error: An unexpected network error occurred (code: 59).
  • Rename of \location\ to \location\ failed.

At this time, support for WORM devices is not planned in the Alike road map, so if you encounter these errors, please use alternate storage for your Alike Data Store.

Final Notes
