The first step is to find out what NetApp's error number 523 is
...  If they have an accessible /usr/include/sys/errno.h or
whatever, you're in luck.  If not, RTFM, or wait for their
support people to get back to you.

Because of the "-d" option.  If by "removed" you mean that the
files were "cvs rm"ed, then the directory (and the files) are
still present in the repo.  It wouldn't surprise me if "cvs
update -dP" does things suboptimally -- creates each directory,
then deletes it again if it ends up empty.
