What can cause this issue is a corrupted file under the the $DEVTEST_HOME/vsBuilderSessions/VSE_2013 folder in the VSE Server. 

Or if exists file, then under the folder <dataDirectory_path_Mentioned_In_lisa.user.properties_file>/vsBuilderSessions/VSE_2013


All supported releases of DevTest


  • On the VSE server, make sure the VSE is not running.
  • Rename the VSE_2013 folder under $DEVTEST_HOME/vsBuilderSessions. Or if exists file, then rename VSE_2013 under the folder <dataDirectory_path_Mentioned_In_lisa.user.properties_file>/vsBuilderSessions/
  • Restart the VSE Service.
  • The VSE_2013 folder will be recreated when the VSE starts.
Also check if the registry.log or vse.log show errors similar to: /root/lisatmp...: No space left on device
In that case insufficient space has been configured for the lisatmp folder and may need to be moved to a disk with more space.
