The bpfis logs show snapshot rotation requests (bpfis delete with "-force -prepare") but the logs are partial due to /usr being full. During the snapshot rotation when the /usr gets full, bpfis is unable to save the snapshot state-file downloaded from the master server. The /usr getting full can cause such unpredictable results as bpfis needs to create or save files on /usr during its operation.
Clean up or move existing logs to some other location and retry the tests to see if snapshot rotation issue persists.
To ensure that /usr doesn't become full due to NetBackup logs, convert the /usr/openv/netbackup/logs directory into a link pointing to a separate mount point on another disk.
