Hello List,

Since a week ago I’ve started to receive this message every time the rancid script run to get backups.

Old lockfile still exists:
-rw-r----- 1 rancid rancid 0 May 12 12:01 /tmp/.Fortinet.run.lock

The above happen only for Fortigate devices and not for the other (Cisco, Brocade, etc..) which work fine.

Even if I remove the /tmp/.Fortinet.run.lock file, the next time the script run the problem happen again!

Someone have an idea about how to fix it?
