Hi Krish,

You can have a quick check if the input arguments are wrong?
For example, the asked cache too big(it should not exceed 512) or the name is too long(should be less than 32Bytes).

There were other reasons may caused this failure, you do better track down and locate where it failed.

Best Regards,
