WARNING: msgcnt x: mesg 059: V-2-59: vx_snap_getbitbp - mount_point snapshot file system bitmap write error

An I/O error occurred while writing to the snapshot file system bitmap. There is no problem with the snapped file system, but the snapshot file system is disabled.

Recommended action:

Check the console log for I/O errors. If the problem is a disk failure, replace the disk. If the problem is not related to an I/O failure, find out how the disk became corrupted. If no user or process was writing to the device, report the problem to your customer support organization. Restart the snapshot on an error free disk partition. Rerun any backups that failed when the error occurred.
