/usr/openv/tmp/ full due to align files

Hello,

we have a problem regarding netbackup ona  media server that stopped to work due to a saturation of space under /usr/openv/tmp.

almost 4000 align files are created in this directory and according to this technote : https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.100046168 this happens on veritas appliances.

this is not an appliance veritas, just an ordinary server with redhat on it.

can we safely delete this files? I just moved them to another location (/tmp/tmpnetbackup/) but it also filled that space..

 

thanks!
