I have some backupscripts, which save the backup onto an NFS-mounted 
share. From time to time, the backup quits with an error:

/bin/tar: /export/servers/home/home-Sun.tar: Cannot open: Input/output error
/bin/tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

How can I get more info on why the backup failes?

Any ideas?
