Application-consistent snapshot operations for ext2 file system assets fail (12948)
If you try to create application-consistent snapshots of
ext2 file system assets, either from the CloudPoint user interface (UI) or using the CloudPoint API, the snapshot operation fails.
The following errors appear in the CloudPoint log file:
ERROR - Failed to freeze filesystem: ext2 on device <device>. ERROR: fsfreeze: /ext2mnt: freeze failed: Operation not supported
While creating a snapshot, CloudPoint attempts to freeze the file system. But the fsfreeze command itself is not supported on
ext2 file systems and therefore the operation fails.
There is no known workaround at the moment. Veritas recommends that if you wish to create application-consistent snapshots for file system assets, you use only the supported file systems such as ext3, ext4, or XFS.
