Hello, we just recently upgraded our DB servers to version 1.4.1 from 
version 1.2.13.  Since doing so, our backup database has been getting 
corrupted on a nightly basis.

We have two different cells, each consisting of three DB servers - one 
cell runs Solaris 8, and the other runs Solaris 9.  Both cells are having 
this problem.

The backup databases have the same size, but the timestamps and
contents are different (md5sum checksums don't match).  In addition, 
volsets or dumps that appear in one won't necessarily appear in the 

Server 1:
# ls -l bdb.DB0
-rw-------   1 root     other    106269760 Oct 17 02:29 bdb.DB0
# md5sum bdb.DB0
8a48ca999018be7d007b7bf008b18fdc  bdb.DB0

Server 2:
# ls -l bdb.DB0
-rw-------   1 root     root     106269760 Oct 17 02:05 bdb.DB0
# md5sum bdb.DB0

Server 3:
# ls -l bdb.DB0
-rw-------   1 root     other    106269760 Oct 17 02:19 bdb.DB0
# md5sum bdb.DB0

Any help anyone can provide would be appreciated!
