Complete error message:
(10: 45030) Invalid file name (BUG). 

Explanation:
Symlinks / circular links in UNIX/Linux file systems or mounted MAC file systems result in file/path names which are longer than the maximum allowed number of characters.

Pre-flight check:

To detect a circular link on HP-UX, Solaris and Linux use:  "find / -follow > /dev/null".  If a circular link is detected, the following output is shown.

# find / -follow > /dev/null
find: "Filename" creates a cycle

To detect a circular link on AIX and Linux,  use "tar chf /dev/null /".  If a circular link is detected, the following output is shown;

# tar chf /dev/null /
tar: /sys/devices/platform/pcspkr/subsystem/devices/pcspkr/subsystem/devices/pcspkr/subsystem/devices/pcspkr/subsystem/devices/pcspkr/subsystem
