The post-client script is called after rsync finishes so you don't need
to worry that the mount is still busy because of that. There must be
some other problem.

You're running a script called lvmsnapshot.sh, which you say isn't
giving you much info. So what is in that script? Where does it come
from? Does it have a facility to provide more info? If not can't you
just edit it so it does?

BTW, does the output you have posted come from the dirvish log file? If
not, what is in the dirvish log file?

Cheers, Dave
