Error description

  • During the replicate node process, updating for Space Managed
    files may fail without an explicit error message.
    
    Update on the target side can end successfully, but the source
    server considers the update as failed.
    
    Typically, the errors seen in the activity log are:
    
    Source server:
    ANR0987I Process 6549 for Replicate Node running in the
    BACKGROUND processed X items with a
    completion state of FAILURE at xx:xx:xx.
    
    
    From a 'repl' trace on source server it will be seen:
