I'm getting a Warning: Attempt to open already open device 120 with a duplicate inode.

Each time I get this message it displays a different device number.
How can I correct this and is there a command that will list each individual inode and it's associated device?

This is a SCO Unixware 2.13 system. To my knowledge it have not being downed ungracefully, but we added a Digi Port Server and presently when ever any of the ports (there are 16 port,one end of the cable plugs into Port Server{RJ45}and the other end to a modem {serial}) on the Port Server loose connection with the network, we have to reboot the Unix Server. Digi said that they don't know of any commands to reset the disconnected port. Other then rebooting the Server, which I don't feel is a good practice. This could happen anywhere for 1-2 times a week, but not on going. Depending on how many remote Showsite are active(Customer Service call ins).

We also have two more Port Servers (each have 8 ports)in two out of state locations.

Do you still think that something else could be contributed to the error. Also the Error message this time went away without any rebooting.
