afs: Waiting for busy volume 123456789 () in cell hostname

The backup of volume 123456789 is done on the 123456789.backup volume, which is a read-only clone of the read-write 123456789 volume. This is done to prevent any inaccessibility for users while the volume is being backed up. Such inaccessibility is indicated by “afs: Waiting for busy volume 123456789 in cell hostname”.
A “busy volume” message may also result from a system administrator moving a 123456789 volume to a new disk location.
