Duplications which originate from a MSDP (media server deduplication pool) storage server and write to a target which is a three node or greater PDDO (PureDisk deduplication option) storage pool fail with a Status 191. The Replication.log shows a 99: Error sending data: only sent -1 of 16384 bytes: broken pipe message.

Error Message

The replication.log which can be found in <storage>/log/spad/ on the source MSDP pool shows the following:
