mount points are already mounted


I have some issue with the mounting/unmounting on my sun solaris box.

Actually their is one script that mount the file system take the backup of databases and unmount the file system.Last week this script failed to mount the file system with the below error message:

+ echo Unable to file system check /db2-sp.
I ran the fsck for /db2-sp manually and here is what came back:
# fsck -F ufs -o p /dev/rdsk/c3t11d113s1
/dev/dsk/c3t11d113s1: /dev/dsk/c3t11d113s1 IS CURRENTLY MOUNTED.

I then did a df to see what was mounted as c3t11d113. This is what I found:
# df|grep c3t11d113
/tmp/.rlg.ytaGOG/.rlg.ytaGOG(/dev/dsk/c3t11d113s1):14107162 blocks 1678436 files

I did a little digging and found that this file system, /tmp/.rlg.ytaGOG/.rlg.ytaGOG, had been mounted at 20:43 last night. We couldn't tell if it was a manual or scripted mount. After we unmounted the wrong file system, I did the fsck and mount of csmssp3582dg.cln1 manually and everything worked OK.

Can anyone help me in finding out what exactly causing this issue.I mean Anyway to check what is causing this "/tmp/.rlg.ytaGOG/.rlg.ytaGOG" to be mounted.

Thanks in advance
