    Description

      On the new UNL stratum 1 machine where I have been running cvmfs_server gc on five garbage collectable repositories daily since November 17, there have been a dozen cases of the function finishing with

      garbage collection failed
      Fail (6)!

      with no additional explanation in /var/log/messages, just a message there that said "failed to garbage collect". It's only a transient error; later when it runs, it succeeds. The first half dozen were the same repo, cms-ib.cern.ch, for 6 days in a row, but the next day it cleared itself up and the other half dozen were on various repositories.

      How can I debug this?
