Known Issues

  • Synchronization tasks of buckets with more than 60 thousand objects fail with a timeout error

    When you try to sync a bucket that contains more than 60 thousand objects, the synchronization task expires after 24 hours.

    Workaround: Click the Sync Now button repeatedly until the synchronization task completes successfully.

  • Sync Now option does not work when synchronizing buckets

    When objects or folders are uploaded through the S3 API, the changes are not showing up in VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension after clicking the Sync Now button.

    Workaround: Click the Sync Now button after the bucket accumulates enough number of object changes - more than 500 new objects. New objects might not be displayed in the portal but they can be accessed through the VMware Cloud Director Object Storage Extension S3 API directly.
