The Question is:

We try to backup a disk using the following command:
For some files we get the following error:
%BACKUP-E-READVERR, virtual read error on file [PROD.NID.LNR]LNR08.EXE;5 at bloc
k 1779
-SYSTEM-F-INSFMEM, insufficient dynamic memory
Note that the backup continues after this error
with other files.

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard will assume that you have set the process
  quotas for the BACKUP username to the values specified in the
  OpenVMS System Manager's Manual (for BACKUP operator usernames),
  and will also assume that you are aware that /IGNORE=INTERLOCK
  is equivilent to permitting data inconsistencies; that the
  interlocks exist for a reason and that the implications of
  overriding the interlocks is fully understood.
 READVERR,  virtual read error on file 'file-name' at block 'block-
  Facility:     BACKUP, Backup Utility
  Explanation:  The Backup utility received an error while reading a block
                associated with the specified file.
  User Action:  Determine why the file could not be read and repeat the backup
 INSFMEM,  insufficient dynamic memory
  Facility:     SYSTEM, System Services
  Explanation:  Either a command or image exhausted the system pool of
                available dynamic memory and the system cannot complete the
                request, or the system manager did not allocate enough dynamic
  User Action:  Check for a programming error; this status code can be
                returned from a system service request when the image has
                disabled resource wait mode. Notify the system manager if
                insufficient memory is allocated.
  Please see topics (105), (1628), and (2050).
  The OpenVMS Wizard would then suggest checking for hardware errors, applying
  all current mandatory ECO kits and all relevent ECO kits, analyzing the disk
  structure, and re-writing this particular file.
