Hello Michael, 

thank you for your response.

They’re both on 5-RELEASE, in different detail stages. (The exact stages where in my first e-mail).

This didn’t work so well: 

| zoii# hammer mirror-copy /pfs/hg root at
| PFS slave /pfs/hg-new does not exist.
| Do you want to create a new slave PFS? [y/n] No terminal for response
| hammer: Aborting operation
| hammer: validate_mrec_header: short read

Also, I’m rather confident it’s not our network. All other traffic there works just fine. 

I’m somewhat sceptical of the receiving end being able to do md5 checksums — there was an issue on updating packages that also threw out a lot of checksum issues with files.
