Subject: [CentOS] mkdir Fail when creating multiple directories


Hi, I use the program Unison to synchronize two servers and have been
having a problem recently with errors saying mkdir failed.

The program tries to make backup copies of any file it is going to
overwrite before it actually does the sync. The backups have been
failing because of the mkdir failure. To try and find the problem, I
logged in as root and then tried the same command that unison was trying
and it failed for me also. I can't seem to get mkdir to create more than
one directory at a time which is a real problem for unison, because
sometimes the file to be backed up is 5 or 6 directories deep. Does
anyone know why this could happen? I am running CentOS 4.0 with all the
available security updates applied.


Thank You,


Mike Elkevizth
