pdk-root.nnnnn are filling /tmp directory on linux server

I am seeing a number of pdk-root.<nnnnn> directories created under /tmp/ on a physical Linux server running oracle. We are using SC 4.1P1 to backup Oracle DB. I don't see this happening on every server where SC 4.1P1 agent is running. Any ideas what might be the cause for the build up of these directories?

We noticed the same and opened BURT 807980, which has been fixed in Snap Creator 4.1P2.

4.1P2 is available now at:

Follow the 4.0 to 4.1 upgrade steps listed in the Snap Creator install guide to upgrade.

One minor caveat - if running your Snap Creator Server on Windows be sure to follow the uninstall directions first as there are a few more directories to back up in 4.1 that were not present in 4.0.
