Description

  • There is a possibility to have whitespaces character in a file path
  • Whitespaces are against best practices to be used with any file system, use "_" instead
  • Example: /vol/vol_test_1/New Folder/test.txt
  • Listing of the file may fail with the following error:

::> set advanced
::*> node run -node <node_name> -command "ls /vol/vol_test_1/New Folder"
/vol/vol_test_1/New: Can't open directory: No such file or directory
