Application Instance Fails with the Message, "Directory renamed before its status could be extracted"

Environment

  • Pivotal Cloud Foundry® Versions 1.12 and 2.0
  • Elastic Runtime Versions 1.12 and 2.0
  • GrootFS All Version

Symptom

The process of application staging or application instance creation fails with the following message:

... [CELL/2] ERR Copying into the container failed: stream-in: nstar: error streaming in: exit status 2. 
Output: tar: XXXX: Directory renamed before its status could be extracted

Cause

An OvelayFS Kernel bug is the reason of this error.

Resolution

Please do not opt-out GrootFS without telling us. Pivotal Support and R&D would like to hear about situations where opting out becomes necessary.

We have identified the issue and we working with Canonical in getting the patch that is fixing it backported to 4.4 Kernels.

The issue can be resolved by reverting to the previous implementation for container filesystems.

You can do so by unchecking “Enable the GrootFS container image plugin for Garden RunC” in the Application Containers page of OpsManager.
