I hope someone has an idea. 

I have a replication program that copies a dataset from one server to another 
one. The replication mechanism is the obvious one, of course:

 zfs send -Ri from snapshot(n-1) snapshot(n) > file
scp file remote machine (I do it this way instead of using a pipeline so that a 
network error won't interrupt a receive data stream)
and on the remote machine,
zfs receive -Fd pool

It's been working perfectly for months, no issues. However, yesterday we began 
to see something weird: the zfs receive being executed on the remote machine is 
exiting with an exit status of 1, even though the replication is finished, and 
I see the copied snapshots on the remote machine. 

Any ideas? It's really puzzling. It seems that the replication is working (a 
zfs list -t snapshot shows the new snapshots correctly applied to the dataset) 
but I'm afraid there's some kind of corruption.

The OS is Solaris, SunOS  5.10 Generic_141445-09 i86pc i386 i86pc.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
