Thanks for the reply, but the problem is not getting the file to system
C, but rather it always sees the file as corrupt. In further testing it
may be a hardware issue.

The first time I ran md5sum on the file (on the share) was:
a72c2c415a81cd7722319004987679f1 backup_ams_1.tar.gz

I rebooted the system, and this time it was:
2a93d60a45712595b6edbbfad5075de3 backup_ams_1.tar.gz

Testing the file with gzip gives this:

gzip -t -v backup_ams_1.tar.gz
gzip: backup_ams_1.tar.gz: invalid compressed data--crc error

gzip: backup_ams_1.tar.gz: invalid compressed data--length error

The other two systems show the file is ok (file still on share)

gzip -t -v backup_ams_1.tar.gz
backup_ams_1.tar.gz: OK
