cmd splunkd clean-dispatch error

Hi guys, on our job server we have a crontab that move search from dispatch directory to another directory.
Source directory and target directory are on different FileSystem, but both mounted in ext3. The command goes in error with:

Invalid cross-device link

The simple Linux mv command (even if take errors) it actualy move files.

Someone has this problem? Someone know how to solve it?

Thanks and regards.

Hi maurelio79,

take a look at this answer http://answers.splunk.com/answers/29551/too-many-search-jobs-found-in-the-dispatch-directory.html you will find a comment from @jrodman

 for the current limitations of clean-dispatch, destdir must be on the same file system as the dispatch dir.

cheers, MuS
