/bin/find: stat() error <File> : No such file or directory


I am getting below error in Solaris 10 SPARC when trying to issue a search on /var/tmp partition

Below is the query

/bin/find /var/tmp/ -type f -atime +1

Below is the result

/bin/find: stat() error <File> : No such file or directory

can you post your PATH
echo $PATH

clean it (temporary)

test your command

and if your have the same problem post the result of this command
truss -aef -rall -wall find /var/tmp -type f -atime +1

Is this error intermittent? It may be seeing a file in the directory but not getting a chance to stat it before it's deleted, which makes sense for /tmp/.

This error is regular, as the cronjob runs every day, to find the files in that directory (i.e) /var/tmp. Is there anything can be done to identify the issue?

Following mat_solaris truss suggestion would be a good start.

As requested i have cleaned up PATH temporarily but still i am getting the same error.

I have attached the file for the below command as requested.
truss -aef -rall -wall find /var/tmp -type f -atime +1

Please assist.

There is a file named "file-03450608-14620.jpg" that was either removed between the directory entries list read and the file status read or which appears but doesn't exist due to a corrupted file system.
