ProblemStorage Foundation for Windows (SFW) 5.0 Rollup Patch 1a (RP1a) "VxSnapEx" fails while executing schedules created using Quick Recovery (QR) wizard. QR Wizard created schedules are also not visible in Veritas Enterprise Administrator (VEA).
If there are any schedules created using Quick Recovery Configuration Wizard,
1. On SFW 5.0 RP1a, these schedules would not get executed as VxSnapEx.exe fails. These schedules are also not visible in the VEA GUI.
2. On SFW 5.0 and then upgraded to RP1a are still valid.
Note: Schedules created using VEA GUI have no issues.
This is a known issue and resolved with the attached file (1275372_305962.exe).
