I am getting the following error when i run tar on a directory.

[chandra@home]$ tar  zcf config-xsl.tar  config-xsl/9.6

tar: Cannot open directory
No such file or directory

[chandra@home]$ ldd  tar

I have debugged libc and found that  system call "fstafs" is failing and
returning -1.

Can any one help me what is the real problem here and how to fix it?
