Hi Avra,

I wanted to check if there is any workaround for this issue.

Hi Bhavana,

The doc text looks good. But there is no workaround to this problem. The snapshot create will fail and needs to be retried.

Comment 7 Mohammed Rafi KC 2017-08-17 07:20:09 UTC
Since barrier xlator enable or disable was failed because of the graph initialization , then I think it is an expected failure. As long as it fail properly then it won't create any problem. Unless there is any un-recoverable problem with the failure, we don't need to keep this bug open.
