hi All,

I am trying to get newer patches onto our ZLM system using zlmmirror we are running 7.3 ir4.
the Repo directory ( /var/opt/novell/zenworks/pkg-repo/packages ) has 29999 sub directories in it and cannot create another directory for a patch.

Is there a limit here?
we have recently deleted old patch bundles out of the system.
Is there a database clean up or directory clean up/ resync we can run to get the directories number down?

df -h tells me I have 33 Gb available on that partition which is LVM with EXT3

zlm mirror shell errors like this

(couldn't add package to repository: Could not create repository directory: /var/opt/novell/zenworks/pkg-repo/packages/d689)
An error occured while processing the request. Please check the log file for details

zlmmirror.log has this in it
