The given directory could not be removed because vxconfigd could not fork in order to run the rm utility. This is not a serious error. The only side effect of a directory not being removed is that the directory and its contents will continue to use space in the root file system. The most likely cause for this error is that your system does not have enough memory or paging space to allow vxconfigd to fork.

If your system is this low on memory or paging space, your overall system performance is probably substantially degraded. Consider adding more memory or paging space.
