Your Apache Spark jobs are failing with a FileReadException error when attempting to read files on DBFS (Databricks File System) mounted paths.
org.apache.spark.SparkException: Job aborted due to stage failure: Task x in stage y failed n times, most recent failure: Lost task 0.3 in stage 141.0 (TID 770) (x.y.z.z executor 0): com.databricks.sql.io.FileReadException: Error while reading file dbfs:/mnt/Cloudfolder/folder1/silver_table/part-00000-twerrx-abcd-4538-ae46-87041a4fxxxx-c000.snappy.parquet
A FileReadException error can occur when a job dynamically handles mounts. When a series of mounts and unmounts happen for the same path in the same workspace, the driver and the executors can end up with different paths at the same mount point, depending on when the cluster was started and/or the mount was initialized.
To prevent the error from occurring, you need to include the dbutils.fs.refreshMounts() command in your Spark job before you reference a DBFS path.
The dbutils.fs.refreshMounts() command refreshes the mount points in the current workspace. This ensures that the executors and driver have a current and consistent view of the mount, regardless of when the cluster was started and/or the mount was initialized.
