Symptoms

NDMP backups are failing on the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance.  The backup application is Commvault.

The ZFS-SA has a HBA installed, with a number of tape drives presented to it via the SAN.

The tape drives appear in BUI Status/NDMP.

 

Most filesystems are backed successfully, but many are unsuccessful.  When the unsuccessful filesystems are backed up individually, they will usually backup successfully.


This is the relevant information from the Commvault logs:
