There probably is more information in the SrvLog or SrvErr files on the
server, but it is most likely one of the following,

  - backup and clone require the volume to be locked first.
  - dump and dumpestimate can only work on readonly (backup and clone)
  - In some cases you can get away with using the volume name, in other
    cases you need to give the replicated volume id (7f...) and
    sometimes you have to use the volume id of the volume replica.

I don't know what exactly causes the error.
