Re: [Networker] RPC send operation failed; errno = Broken pipe
I agree that the keep alive time setting should be added. Try that and restart.
I can't remember if a reboot is required for the os settings to take effect.
Hope it works for you.

Check logs on the client for hardware issues (dmesg,
/var/log/messages, /nsr/logs/*). Then, if all seems well, run a tar on
the file system in question and make sure it is able to walk the entire
tar cvf - / | cat > /dev/null
Another issue might be a firewall between the client and server with
a connection table time out too short for your session. The solution is
to increase the timeout (if possible) or enable TCP keep alive on your
server. This is my setup:
# more /etc/rc2.d/S93nettwicks
# Helps to solve RPC errors under heavy load.
/usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_conn_req_max_q 1024
/usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_conn_req_max_q0 4096
# Should help with backups thru firewall
/usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_keepalive_interval 600000
