Getting "....Reason: Read-write transaction is open." error while issuing cifs audit commands



I am working on netapp vserver cifs auditing. Frequently I am not able to issue any audit commands and I am getting the below error,


Error: command failed: Failed to rotate audit log, for Vserver "cifs3". Reason: Read-write transaction is open.


Only If I restart the server, I am able to work with audit commands again. I am using ontap 8.2.1 OS.


Can anyone help me  with this issue.
