'/data01' partition on ACM is corrupt and, because of which, ACM is unable to access AVE OVF File for deployment. The input/output error is seen while accessing '/data01' partition.
  1. Log in to the ACM Virtual Machine as 'root' user.

  2. Traverse to "/data01" to verify the integrity of the partition and file:    

cd /data01
  1. Verify if we are able to write/create file to this directory:    
touch test
  1. If the following error is seen, then the /data01 partition is corrupt. 
acmlab:/data01 # touch test
touch: cannot touch  test : Input/output error
  1. Hit Retry to complete the rollback. Do not proceed to next step until the rollback is complete. 
  2. Take a snapshot of ACM Virtual Machine from ESXi/vCenter UI.

  3. Stop the dataprotection_webapp service on ACM gracefully:   

service dataprotection_webapp stop

Note: Do not run this step in ACM rollback or configuration is in progress. 
  1. Reboot the ACM VM.
  2. Retry Step 3-4.

  3. If the issue is still seen, run xfs_repair on the /data01 partition.
