From the Netapp engineering team (thanks Karthik):
There are some max http connection exceeded errors, and also during resize, there is no exception, and the zapi calls have not returned.
Looks like ontap error similar to http connection exceeded errors.
This would be related to http://support.netapp.com/NOW/cgi-bin/bol?Type=Detail&Display=552607 and 8.0.3P4 should fix the problem for me. Lee since you are on 8.1.1 you need to go to any of the versions of these 8.1 versions
