OneFS: How to recover individual file(s) from Snapshots using the OneFS’ Sync IQ

Article Number: 514023 Article Version: 3 Article Type: How To

Isilon OneFS,Isilon SyncIQ

This KB article explains how to restore/recover data from Snapshots via Sync IQ

A Snapshot is a copy of the files/folders within the location selected. The contents of each snapshot reflect the state of the file system at the time the snapshot was created. It is easy to navigate through each snapshot as if it were still active. Your directories/folders and files will appear as they were at the time that the snapshot was created. You can easily recover your own files, before snapshot expiration, simply by copying an earlier version from the snapshot to the original directory or to an alternate location.

Note: It is good practice to copy files to a temporary directory rather than overwriting current files/folders. This gives users the option to keep either the Snapshot copy, current copy, or both


Assume we have folder /ifs/original_folder andthis folder contained subfolders:

folder1 folder2 folder3 folder4

subfolders “folder1 , folder2 and folder3” got deleted from HEAD but they still exist in snapshot with ID 59 as below:

# ls /ifs/original_folder


# isi snapshot snapshots view snapshot

ID: 59

Name: snapshot

Path: /ifs/original_folder

Has Locks: No

Schedule: –

Alias Target ID: –

Alias Target Name: –

Created: 2017-11-15T11:04:58

Expires: –

Size: 10.0k

Shadow Bytes: 0

% Reserve: 0.00%

% Filesystem: 0.00%

State: active

Riptide-1# ls /ifs/original_folder/.snapshot/snapshot

folder1 folder2 folder3 folder4

We will recover subfolder “folder 2″ only from snapshot 59 to the path /ifs/recoverd_folder as below:

1- Create a policy with source /ifs/original_folder and to include subfolder “folder2” only

# isi sync policies create –name=recover –source-root-path=/ifs/original_folder –source-include-directories=/ifs/original_folder/folder2 —target-host=localhost –target-path=/ifs/recoverd_folder –action=sync

2- Start a sync job for policy recover but from snapshot id 59

In OneFS 7.x

# isi_classic sync pol start recover–use_snap 59

In OneFS 8.x

# isi sync jobs start –policy-name=recover –source-snapshot=59

3- Confirm that the sync job finished

# isi sync reports list

Policy Name Job ID Start Time End Time Action State


recover 1 2017-11-15T11:38:02 2017-11-15T11:38:07 run finished


Total: 1

4- Check recovered folder , it will contain subfolder “folder2” only.

# ls /ifs/recoverd_folder

This issue is caused by FSAnalyze snapshots.

Current Workaround:

1 – Remove the FSAnalyze snapshots that are on the cluster

Run this command to view the FSAnalyze Snapshots

# isi snapshot snapshots list -v –format=table –sort=path | grep -i fsa

Once you have the name for the snapshot, put the snapshot name in this command to mark it for deletion


isi snapshot snapshots delete –snapshot=<name of snapshot>

Once they are marked for deletion, start a snapshotdelete job

# isi job jobs start snapshotdelete

2 – Once the snapshots are removed, turn off FSAnalyze snapshot create

Please follow to disable snapshots from being created from FSAnalyze
3 – Start the FSAnalyze again, which should finish without error

# isi job jobs start FSAnalyze

If there are any questions/issues, please contact Isilon Support.

ECS Software: [“” | “”] S3 Bucket / Version List (Complete listing) and Check / Fix metering discrepancies

Article Number: 517138 Article Version: 26 Article Type: Break Fix

ECS Appliance,ECS Appliance Hardware,ECS Appliance Software with Encryption,ECS Appliance Software without Encryption,ECS Software

  • Inability to list complete bucket (more than 1000 objects), via S3 API.
  • Lack of support for all listing operations.
  • No easy method to check for metering discrepancies

  • Tedious manual efforts.
  • Lack of automation.

  • Automation through “oc_map
  • At end of listing, tool compares total size and counts from s3 listing, with those from Metering. Small report health report is generated

  1. Download “oc_map” (Contains “” and “” under “~/oc_map/suite/”). Download locations under “Notes” section.
  2. To get usage:
    ======== ========#python --help======== ========#python --s3_bkt_list_options 
  3. Examples / Typical Usage:
    * NOTE: For "" option "--s3_bkt_dump" is not used.======== ========- Run s3 List against one bucket: --> #python --s3_Key <user> --s3_Secret <secret_key> --bucket <bkt>- Run s3 List against all buckets: --> #python -u root -p ChangeMe --s3_all_bkt --chk_versions --new_map --> ** --quiet can be used on all lists / dumps to suppress output on screen, and only output to log file.- To get and fix (FAST reconstruction only) delta between metering and listing results, add options "--ns_mt <namespace>" and "mt_fix". Example: --> #python --s3_Key <user> --s3_Secret <secret_key> --bucket <bkt> --ns_mt <namespace> --mt_fix- Hybrid listing example (LS Dump, then s3 Prefix (Exact Match) Listing based on each entry from LS dump): --> #python --s3_Key <user> --s3_Secret <secret_key> --hybrid --bypass <namespace>:<bucket>======== ========- Run s3 List against one bucket: --> #python --s3_bkt_dump --s3_Key <user> --s3_Secret <secret_key> --bucket <bkt>- Run s3 List against all buckets: --> #python -u root -p ChangeMe --s3_bkt_dump --s3_all_bkt --chk_versions --new_map --> ** --quiet can be used on all lists / dumps to suppress output on screen, and only output to log file.- To get and fix delta between metering and listing results, add options "--ns_mt <namespace>" and "mt_fix".

Homeless in Vancouver: BC Ministry of Citizens’ Services joins the Linux Foundation

    1 of 12 of 1

    A funny thing happened on my way to writing about IBM buying the open-source company Red Hat: I noticed that a ministry of the B.C. government is listed as a member of the Linux Foundation.

    According to a B.C. government spokesperson, the Ministry of Citizens’ Services of British Columbiajoined the Linux Foundation as an associate member on September 4, 2018, as part of becoming an associate member of the Foundation’s Hyperledger project.

    The Linux Foundation is a nonprofit consortium founded in 2000 to encourage the development and widespread adoption of the open-sourceLinux operating system. The foundation currently has about 1,000 members, running the gamut from private-sector information technology companies, public-sector government and nongovernmental organizations, as well as open-source software developers—all of them having a direct interest or involvement in Linux.

    Associate membership, explains the the Linux Foundation, is open at no cost to government agencies and not-for-profit organizations that “have demonstrated a commitment to building, sustaining and using open source technologies”.

    The B.C. Ministry of Citizen Services’ is the only B.C. government ministry—apparently the only government agency in Canada—to have joined the Linux Foundation.

    It did so in order “to learn from other organizations, collaborate and share information around open source software,” according to the spokesperson, who emailed me in reply to a series of questions on Tuesday (November 6).

    Fast, functional and free—what’s not for a government to like?

    Specifically, the spokesperson explained, the B,C, Ministry of Citizens’ Services is keen to learn and share information about Hyperledger—a Linux Foundation initiative to extract the general-purpose functionality from the open source Bitcoin blockchain.

    The Bitcoin blockchain is a decentralized, cryptographic ledger designed to keep track of all Bitcoin transactions in the world.

    Being stored not on one central computer but linked across some 6,000 computers on the Internet gives the Bitcoin blockchain great computational power, certain economies of scale and makes its encrypted and multiply redundant record of transactions nearly indestructible.

    With Hyperledger, the Linux Foundation is hoping to create a decentralized ledger platform with all the benefits but none of the limitations of Bitcoin’s blockchain—adding scalability and capacity for confidential one-to-one transactions—making it suitable to the varied needs of both government and enterprise.

    An open-source blockchain solution like Hyperledger could be a potential Swiss Army knife for Big Data management—both powerful and inexpensive; suitable for everything from healthcare records, citizen identity and rights management, financials, census and demographics, stock market exchanges and large-scale longitudinal databases.

    For her part, the BC. Ministry of Citizens’ Services spokesperson described Hyperledger as “a collaborative effort created to advance blockchain technologies. It is a global collaboration, hosted by The Linux Foundation, including leaders in finance, banking, Internet of Things, supply chains, manufacturing and Technology”—adding:

    “The ministry is actively exploring the potential uses of technology such as block chain and innovative ways that service delivery for people could be improved.”

    “The ministry is responsible for considering ways that new technologies could be used to provide better services to British Columbians, and the Linux Foundation membership assists in this work,” the spokesperson concluded.

    Surface Pro 4 won’t boot after SEE credentials entered

    I need a solution

    After powering on the device and entering SEE credientials a black screen appears for about 10 seconds afterwhich the device restarts. In attempts to repair it has been noted that the nvme storage can not be detected in a WinPE. The next logical step would be to try and physically mount the drive as slave. However, we will not be opening the device for repair nor will we be ghosting the drive. Attempts have been made to recover the OS through bootable media though without access to drive during this process this attempt failed. A decision has been made to wipe SEE from the drive in hopes of further device recovery. Is it possible to wipe SEE from the drive without our old adminisrative support on hand? Furthermore, if it helps, the device currently has SED Ver. 10.3.2 (Build 21424).

    VxRail: Migration of VMs from host fails with “The target host does not support the virtual machine’s current hardware requirements”

    Article Number: 524619 Article Version: 3 Article Type: Break Fix

    VxRail Appliance Family

    When attempting to migrate VMs from a certain host in the cluster, the following compatibility error is encountered in the migration wizard:

    The target host does not support the virtual machine’s current hardware requirements.

    To resolve CPU incompatibilities, use a cluster with Enhanced vMotion Compatibility (EVC) enabled. See KB article 1003212.





    The above instructions are related to the new Intel Spectre/Meltdown Hypervisor-assisted Guest Mitigation fixes.

    CPU features can be compared on the affected host and the other hosts via the following:

    > Host-01 (affected):$ cat /etc/vmware/config | wc -l57> Host-02:$ cat /etc/vmware/config | wc -l53

    Hence, when VMs start on the affected hosts, they have extra CPU requirement that wont be met when migrating to other hosts.

    In order to remove these CPU requirements, you will need to refresh the EVC baseline by disabling EVC and re-enable it again. This will update the /etc/vmware/config on all hosts in the cluster.
