Trying to move placeholders - Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

OS: Windows Server 2003 STD 32bit

EV Version:  7.5 SP3

 

 

When trying to move placeholders from one volume to another on the same target file server I receive the following error:

Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

when using command:

fsautility -m -s \\server\share\folder -d \\server\share\folder

Running the command with -r (report mode) successfully generates a report of placeholders to be moved.  Running the command in normal mode generates this error.  Anyone experienced this error and resolved it?

  • Went back, double checked everything, and found that one of the EV services had crashed.  Restarted the service and everything is working normally.
