On the converse side....
If a snapshot is set to start and a backup is running, it will not start
until the backup is complete.
Are you sure (Troy) that the files you're trying to back up are there? I
could've sworn that is what a 99 referred to. I had that when someone
changed the vol maps on a NetApp and didn't say anything until the
backups ran and they were not able to connect to a certain volume.

I am seeing the same thing here running FP6 and NetApp 6.4.2P4, although
I had assumed it was the fault of the filer - snap list shows that the
backup snapshot is busy for quite some time (in many cases over 24
hours, causing the backup to fail) and df shows that the filesystem
space available for /vol/vol0/.snapshot is decreasing while the backup
snapshot is being created - meaning to me that the filer is busy
creating the snapshot and the backup server is sitting there waiting for
it to finish the snapshot.
I am seeing this on a filer with 125GB in 11700000 files. Fulls run
fine, but incrementals are painful if at all successful. I've been
putting the blame on the tons of small files.
