In my understanding you easily can propagate this error to your readonly =

replicas by "vos release"ing the corrupt volume. The volserver on the=20
receiving side would remove any data not mentioned in the dump stream.

Better you do a "vos convertROtoRW" on the RO-site as soon as possible=20
to regain a valid RW-volume in this case.
