rscsi character devices in /var/tmp

I have a two-node ServiceGuard cluster consisting of two rp5470 hosts and one ds2300. What might be those following character devices that keep appearing in /var/tmp/every minute? Of course I can remove those files (at least the oldest & unused ones), but I'd like to know the reason for those files.

Re: rscsi character devices in /var/tmp

Mikko,

I know that a non-HP software for accessing optical juke boxes creates temporary device files like you found. Is there such software installed on your system ?

Re: rscsi character devices in /var/tmp

Hi,

??t seems that there is a problem with the dm_ses_enclosure monitor from EMS on diagnostics versions later than June/02 which results in craetion of vary many device files under /var/tmp because the monitot dies after 1-2 minutes and gets restarted. The problem will be fixed with diagnostics release 12/02. Diagnostic 09/02 which currently can be downloaded from software.hp.com does not have this problem if only one DS2300 is connected via one BCC.

Best regards

Re: rscsi character devices in /var/tmp

Was there a patch for this or what? I am getting the same stuff - but not running Service Guard. All HP disks not third party. Mine is fireing off about every 2 min. or so.
