MED-V 1.0 SP1 Error During Image Upload: “The image file already exists on the server”


When you attempt to upload a packed image to an image distribution server within the MED-V management console, you may get the following error:

Failed Uploading image to the server. Please verify that the server is configured correctly.
Error details: The image file <HREF path to file> already exists on the server. Remove the file from the server and try uploading the image again.

You get this error in spite of an existing file not on the image distribution server.

In addition, you will notice 0 byte file markers (labled bitssrv_{GUID}) in the MED-V Server images directory.

This is caused by the directory not having CREATOR OWNER listed in the NTFS permissions list for the directory with its appropriate permissions.

To fix this, you will need to add in the CREATOR OWNER account in the permissions list for the local directory being used by the IIS virtual directory for the MED-V server-based images.

NAME: CREATOR OWNER
Apply to: Subfolders and files only
Permissions: Allow Traverse Folder/Execute File, List Folder/Read Data, Read attributes, read extended attrobutes, Read permissions
