errpt command show the error message complaining about filesystem is full (df command shows some 10 filesystems is being 100% used). . The detailed report gives the major/minor device number: 000A 000F.

The characters: 000A 000F on the message are hexadecimal numbers. convert them to decimal numbers( 10 and 15) respectively. So, go to directory /dev and issue the command:

For instance,

#cd /dev
#ls -al | grep 10, 15

crw-rw---- 1 root system 10, 15 Apr 22 08:27 rtemplv
brw-rw---- 1 root system 10, 15 Apr 22 08:27 templv

Look on the 5th and 6th columns for an entry such as: 10, 15 and that will be the device with the issue

From this we can come to know which filesystem is full.

Questions and suggestions are welcome. Thanks
