Vertica backup failing

Vertica Engine - 6.1.3


We suffered database corruption and had to restore our 4 node cluster.


One of the nodes, post restore, didn't come online and we had to delete the entire catalog and rebuilt the node via Vertica.


So - now we have an issue with the backup process. The process continually fails with the following error message on the node that had to be rebuilt:


ERROR 5127:  Unable to create snapshot Could not link file


We've confirmed the file is present the specific directory. SPECIFIC PATH: No such file or directory


We've confirmed the necessary file(s) are in place.


Has anyone experienced this issue?

        Can you check for permissions on all nodes?
