The 'sam-archiverd' and 'sam-arfind' processes are aborting with core file.

Message 4027: sam-arfind... exit status 008b

The events are observed:

  1. arfind exits with code 008b
  2. archiverd crashes, too; but restarts.

  4. Direct I/O Timeouts happen which requires idling all tape activities and doing samd stop/start.

From sam-archiverd trace:


No known change in the system
