A "General fault caused by file" error message is generated when a "Insufficient space for provisioning operation" error message should be generated (1005564)
- Provisioning fails because there is no disk space left on the LUN
- You see this error on the VMware Virtual Desktop Manager dashboard:
General fault caused by file...
However, this error is incorrect and you should see this error:
Insufficient space for provisioning operation...
This issue is fixed in VirtualCenter 2.5 Update 2.
If you cannot update to VirtualCenter 2.5 Update 2, workaround this issue by freeing disk space or providing additional datastores.
