Hello Andrew,

  yes, you are correct ANS4035W ist the correct message.
As of your suggestions, we did some backups and restores and found out that
this error only appears if the object resides on tape. It doesn't matter if
tape is primary, copy or nextstoragepool.

This error appears on Windows, Linux (x and p) and AIX clients up to and
including Client Version 6.1.x.y (other OS and Versions still testing) working
with Linux (x and p), AIX and Windows servers.

ANE4035W reported in Actlog.
