I'm backing up an XServe RAID prior to rebuilding it, and I'm getting the following error...

| 01:57:57 PM | Error | SDCopy(8488) malloc: *** vm_allocate(size=8421376) failed (error code=3)
| 01:57:57 PM | Error | SDCopy(8488) malloc: *** error: can't allocate region
| 01:57:57 PM | Error | SDCopy(8488) malloc: *** set a breakpoint in szone_error to debug


I turned off the option to copy ACLs, and I'm still getting the same error.

Ideas?

Try repairing the source drive, DebbieG, using Disk Utility (you might have to start up from your OSX install disc and run Disk Utility from there).
