What platform is this? Does this release have iofenceutil? Please run
it against on of the devices. Starting the instance with traceflag
15891 should show more about the details of the iofencing.

This is a very old CE release I would upgrade to something based off
15.5 or wait until the 15.7 release is available.

The error is related to trying to retrieve the device by its pathname.
The error is saying that it does not exist (or can't be obtained by
its pathname).
