Could not find a part of the path

Post by g18886 » Wed Sep 20, 2023 10:08 am

Vault appears to be shortening a folder name and putting files under it. During a GETLABEL from CLI it errors trying to retrieve a file from a differently shortened folder name (unk vs. runk) . 'C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp\vaultTmp\runk/DIRECTORY_1/DIRECTORY_2/ProjectFiles/datetime.txt exists. I tried the following workarounds:
1. Deleting cache and retrying- no joy
2. Deleting the bad directory 'C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp\vaultTmp and retrying - no joy
3. Clearing the workspace and retrying- seems to work

Vault Standard 10.1.0 (1128)
This shouldn't be a merge issue as suggested viewtopic.php?p=83558&hilit=Could+not+f ... ath#p83558 since we're using -merge overwrite. The workspace (working folder) has previously been downloaded to. Clearing the workspace before downloading gets around this bug. I have not seen this issue with GET command.

Output with all 3 workarounds applied and successful retry of GETLABEL:

Just to verify, you are using a GETLABEL command from the command line, and by using the -LABELFOLDER option you have configured the command line client with a working folder of "C:\JK\workspace\B@4\Repository\Trunk" and the working folder is either empty or you have populated it with a previous GET command.

My theory is it sees files in there that it thinks it did not get, the Vault code goes into "resolve unknown files" mode. IT is in this mode, that Vault starts retrieving files to %TEMP%\vaultTmp\.

To avoid the issue, making sure the file was first populated with GET or is empty would be one work-around. Or if no file changes need to be committed back to the repository and you can verify there is no working folder set at $/Trunk/, perhaps using the -nonworkingfolder option would work instead.

Hopefully this helps.

Note, when I say the Vault component sees files that it thinks it did not get, the Vault client has a client side cache for files it has retrieved and their state (checked out status list, time stamp, size, etc.). If you're running a builder where those pieces of the file cache file are not maintained between runs because the process doesn't really have a Windows %APPDATA% environment that keeps state between runs or perhaps that location is wiped because a VM rolls back, Vault will consider those files "Renegade."

It is in these Renegade states the Vault client code gets into the "resolve unknown files" section of the code and that is what is causing the problem seen in your situation.

Your reply wasn't clear, when will this be fixed?

I've logged a bug report for the trimming issue for unknown files to investigate a fix for the problem. I'll report back on that once I know more.

In the meantime, hopefully some of the work-arounds I've provided will allow you to avoid unknown file resolution altogether.
