I am having a lot of trouble with OFM on one of our NetWare 6.5 servers.

The server is running NetWare 6.5sp5 with the post sp5 server.exe. The
server has a total of 4gb of memory. We use NetBackup Enterprise Server.
This server is just a NetBackup client which includes OFM. I am running
NetBackup client 5.1mp4 and the OFM version is 94.01.07. I've already
checked to see if there is any newer version available from Veritas - I have
the latest version.

OFM works for the first few days after the server is started and fails after
until another fresh server start. I suspect the problem is memory related
and wonder if it can be tweaked. Currently the server is using auto tuning
for memory.

First 2-3 days after the server is started OFM seems to function and the
snapshot pools are deactivated normally after the backups complete. After
the server has been up for several days I start seeing messages like

Pool SYS_SP: system data I/O error

Volume SYS_SV: system data I/O error

Error reading VolumeData block

Error reading PoolData block

Eventually the snapshot pool is deleted and deactivated

I've attached the current output from seg

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
