vmware creating "...std_filelist" files in /tmp and these files are accumulating, never being deleted
i look on the master appliance in the /tmp directory and have files dated back to last year and these files have zero bytes. The names for these files for ex: are:
I am thinking these are from a vmware policy that queries for the VM's on a cluster and then will backup the VM's.
I applied a patch for cleaning up /tmp ,,"SYMC_NBAPP_EEB_ET2967999-220.127.116.11-3.x86_64.rpm",, thinking this would solve the problem, it did not require a reboot.
I have 5220 appliance on 2.5.1 and netbackup version 18.104.22.168.
i dont know why these are accumulating or if these are needed or what is needed to keep the clutter out of /tmp.
thanks in advance
