I'm getting what I think is a strange error message in /var/log/messages
relating to rcd.

Every two hours, rcd starts up, acts in a normal manner, and then comes
back with this:

According to /etc/SuSE-release, this is
SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 (i586)
VERSION = 9
PATCHLEVEL = 3

rpm -q rcd returns rcd-2.4.9-1.14

I'm very new to the OES world, so I'm looking for pointers in the right
direction with this problem. Is this something common? Anyone fixed
something like this before? How did you do it?

Sorry for the length of this post, and thanks for your time!
