Pls help : file stamp issue on HP UX Servers

Hi All ,

I have a file which gets updated by a korn job daily . The file gets the latest timestamp on everyrun.
But of late i have observed that the file timestamp gets modified to a older date ( Oct 25 2006 ) at some point in time of the day. This change has nothing to do with the job which updates this file.
There is some unknown process which is acting on this and changing the timestamp ( to Oct25 2006 ) everyday. Once the korn job runs it puts the right time stamp. The unexpected change is happening at some other time by some other process.
Could anyone help me find a way to identify the unknown process in question which is modifying the timestamp of this file.

Note : the unknown process is not playing with the content of the file..

Important finding : This is also happening with other files on different servers... Could be a server level issue

Any help in this reg is highly appreciated ... Thanks in advance

Thanks
Sridhar
