If a snapshot is taken on a linked clone, refresh and recompose operations are not supported (1007694)

  • 0 Ratings


If you take a snapshot on a linked clone, you experience these symptoms:
  • A Recompose or Refresh operation fails.
  • View Composer generates the error:

    DiskCustomFault error

    Note: Taking a snapshot of linked clones is not supported by View Composer.


To work around this issue:
  1. Delete the snapshot of the linked clone.
  2. Retry the Recompose or Refresh operation.
Note: In View 3.1, it is not possible to recompose or refresh a linked clone that has any snapshots.
