    This has happened to use a few times and it always ends up being no free space on the disk.

    Partly becuase the UNIX admins only allocate so much space for the cvlt install mount point in your case /cva


    Good Luck!

    Like previously stated, this usually indicates a free space issue.  Here is a KB article link on the topic:
