I have this error now with all the latest software.

MU5, esxi 6.7U3.

If I try and create a file on the vvol datastore I get :- "Cannot complete file creation operation.
Operation failed, diagnostics report: New Folder (Cannot Create File)" instantly appearing.

Literally at a total loss as to what to do next. Its been months messing around with Oneview, Oneview for vCenter, VVols, trying to put all this together in a working config, and now I cant even write to the vvol container! Couldnt make it up.

I feel so close to just quitting this, none of this software/systems feel like they are solid/ready for production use.

My hair is turning grey.

Did the OP get a resolution?

FOLLOWUP:

I got to the bottom of my problem, and it was simple...

I had mistake on our '3parvasa' user on the arrays, which was configured with only browse rights. Not sure how this happened, as my documentation said edit rights!

I could see "createtpvv: access denied" in the esxi vvold.log files, and oddly I couldnt change authorizations for the user in SSCM, (just a blank dropdown). However re-creating the users on the arrays used for VASA with Edit rights fixed the issue and vvols are back in business!

So point to note for everyone setting up VVOLs, always log on to the storage provider in vSphere with an account which has AT LEAST edit rights on the array/s !

:)

Happy days, even if a pretty dumb oversight on my part.
