Intermittent issues when performing Excel extracts: 

"system error: exists for \ failed: existsexception \ failed: boost::filesystem::status: a device attached to the system is not functioning:"filepath": too many links"

This issue discovered using Dell Isilon storage:

Environment

Request for direct IP to connect to one server on the Isilon rather than using the load balancer.

Cause 

Dell Isilon storage load balancer sending Qlik extraction requests to nodes that were prompting for credentials when they should not have been.
