We are running BE 9.1.1158 on NW 6.5 SP6.
Storage contains:
NSS pool SYS with volume SYS.
NSS pool POOL1 with volumes VOL1 and MAIL.
Traditional volume BMCACHE.

We are experiencing errors in backup jobs which I think regard to OFO.

Here's a part of the job log:
##NML##Backing up volume MFP02.NetWare File System/MFP02/VOL1: using Open File Option.
##ERR##Insufficient privilege for \OPT\BEGINFINITE\GWAVA4\services\asengine\con-
##ERR##figs\13d57kr.13d5d0n.gr\temp\13ejg2h.1\gwav a_bayes_body.dic - SKIPPED.

##ERR##figs\13d57kr.13d5d0n.gr\temp\13ejg2h.1\gwav a_bayes_body.idx - SKIPPED.
etc.

I only receive errors from folder \OPT\BEGINFINITE\GWAVA4\services\asengine\configs\ since GWAVA4 has been installed. However, the first week GWAVA4 was installed we didn't receive any errors.

What troubles me is the part that says 'Preview Data Started File Name = BMCACHE:\VOLDATA.TDF op=10 NLM='PORTAL.NLM' Thread='Health Monitor Slow'

It looks like the OFO is storing preview data on the traditional volume BMCACHE.
I read that the ofmcdm.cfg config file only applies to nss pools, so what is the traditional volume doing there?

Could this config be the cause of my backup job errors and if so, can I just erase the 'Device BMCACHE' part from the ofmcdm.cfg? Or do I need make some setting changes?

Kind regards,
