Hello everybody,

I set up a script to replicate all zfs filesystems (some 300 user home 
directories in this case) within a given pool to a "mirror" machine. The basic 
idea is to send the snapshots incremental if the corresponding snapshot exists 
on the remote side or send a complete snapshot if no corresponding previous 
snapshot is available

Thee setup basically works, but form time to time (within a run over all 
filesystems) I get error messages like:

"cannot receive new filesystem stream: dataset is busy" or

"cannot receive incremental filesystem stream: dataset is busy"

The complete script is available under:


does anybody have a suggestion what might cause the dataset to be busy?
