Modify SORT filesystem check

Just ran a SORT on one of my Media Servers and noticed it complained about the filesystem having less than the recommended space available for an upgrade. A quick check of the server reveals why - SORT is checking /usr , instead of the /usr/openv filesystem created specifically to hold NetBackup.

While I can see the reasoning behind the current check, it seems like it'd make a lot more sense to do a check first to see whether such a dedicated filesystem actually existed, and if not, THEN look at the default filesystem space.


Check for a /usr/openv/ filesystem.

Check for an /opt/openv/ filesystem.

If neither found, THEN check the /usr/ filesystem.

As-is it's just flagging something that doesn't need to be in the report.
