I have an Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS server with r1soft agent installed in it. Recently, the backups are failing with the following error.

--------
write error while sending code: Broken pipe
--------

I have reinstalled the buagent but to no avail. On checking the server logs, I could see the following errors listed in it:

--------

--------

I tried changing the 'Timeout' and 'DiskAsPartition' value in '/etc/buagent/agent_config' file but no luck. Also, verified that proper route is added to the backup server. The agent is also running fine.

Am I missing anything? Any help would be much appreciated. Note: CDP 2.0 is installed in the backup server.
