The name of your volume is to long. The maximum is 22 chars, yours has

It seems you try to restore a volume as a backup-volume. I do not think
that this is possible, because every backup-clone needs a rw-parent.

If you do not want that users change the restored volume, you can
restore it as a ro-volume. (vos restore ... -readonly)
