Cause

The number of temporary files in the $CPDIR/tmp/ directory or other directories is very large (e.g., more than 2,000,000).

Note: On the Multi-Domain Security Management Server, check for this in the context of every Domain Management Server.

Example:

[Expert@HostName:0]# ls -l $CPDIR/tmp/ | head -n 12
