Hello,
I am running Centos 5.1 (64 Bit) in my Data Center. My daily backup creation was ok but since 3 days I am getting an error for each account as below:-

Unable to write /home/backSELF/daily/pmos/backup/xxxxxx.com.sa/email/passwd : Unable to get Lock on file
Unable to write /home/backSELF/daily/pmos/backup/xxxxxx.com.sa/email/quota : Unable to get Lock on file

Its while writing the passwd and quota file in the backup directory.
Could anyone tell me how to fix this issue.

Thanks in advance and best regards
Saeed
