Anti-Entropy Sudden Exchange

Ok here’s an update on the issue, I’m really hoping someone can chime in. I disabled Anti-Entropy, restarted Riak, and then tried to run a repair on indexes. After running the command [riak_kv_vnode:repair(P) || P <- Partitions]. Riak then returned the error 

** exception exit: {timeout,{gen_server,call,
                                        [{riak_core_vnode_manager,'riak at'},
     in function  gen_server:call/2 (gen_server.erl, line 180)

We then tried to use the Basho Riak Data Migrator tool to back up the most recent data on the node, but it takes 2 minutes to export a simple KV object (and these are less than 32kb in size).  Thanks for your help.

FYI Using Riak 1.4.6
