VM Export error: message: Unix.Unix_error(Unix.EIO, "read", "")

Marcelo Flores


Hello gents,


When I did an export to a usb disk mounted directly, I obtain the following error when xva file is about 8GB. (VM disk is 600GB) :


[root@akxen usb]# xe vm-export vm=AkCE filename=AkCE20200913.xva

The server failed to handle your request, due to an internal error.  The given message may give details useful for debugging the problem.

message: Unix.Unix_error(Unix.EIO, "read", "")


But in XenCenter notifications shows export as completed.


Any ideas?


Thanks for tour help.

Hi Tobias, thanks for your answer.


No difference. But I have to tell you that I exported others VMs without any problem. Then the issue is in that specific VM. Now the question is: how to repair that VM in order to export it? Is there a kind of scandisk for Xenserver VMs? The VM is a Windows Server and it is in a local storage.
