Export Failure

Hi All,

I am attempting to export some nodes from an AIX 6.2.4 server over to a linux 7.1.4.1 server. A lot of my exports run just fine, but every so often I bump into a node which fails rather quickly into the process and I get the following error in the server activity log:

ANR0724E EXPORT NODE: Processing terminated abnormally -transaction failure.


After examining the activity log, nothing obvious jumps out at me as to why this is happening. All the media the process is looking for is present and readable. I'm curious if anyone else has bumped into this before?

I ran a trace with the "XI" flag to see if I'd get any more useful details, and I did get more information, but it's hard to understand what this means (unless you're used to reading traces). I'm going to include that output in case anyone would like to take a shot at guessing what the problem might be here.

Sincere thanks for any insights,
C.J.

from an AIX 6.2.4 server over to a linux 7.1.4.1 server.
Sounds like we are doing a server to server export.
Even though there are no hints in the actlog.
Can you re-create the issue? If so, please post the actlog from the source and target.
And please do not use the "search" it will filter out any important information.

Good Luck,
Sias
