Do you have enough free space on this filesystem?
I saw another post about the filesystem being very busy during a backup.

Sorry for the delay. I will check and give you a response.
Commented:
If my guess is right, you try to dump /location filesystem mounted on /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s5?
I can see the problem here is, the dump file is under /location, which is the filesystem you try to copy. This is the problem, because the filesystem you tried to backup is constantly updated by writing the dump file, that is why the "warning" messages ...

Move the dump file to someway else can resolve the problem.

Move the dump file to some whereelse should resolve this problem.
