*.map.tmp files found in / of ESXi filesystems? Why?

Dear,

Today I discovered in the root of one Esxi system lots of *.map.tmp files named after all the files pertaining to 3 different VMs we're backing on that node.

ls -l /win16*
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            41 Oct 19 08:57 /win16-50-Snapshot8.vmsn.map.tmp
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root      15534080 Oct 19 08:57 /win16-50-flat.vmdk.map.tmp
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            41 Oct 19 08:57 /win16-50.nvram.map.tmp
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            41 Oct 19 08:57 /win16-50.vmdk.map.tmp
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            41 Oct 19 08:57 /win16-50.vmsd.map.tmp
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            41 Oct 19 08:57 /win16-50.vmsd.tmp.map.tmp
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            41 Oct 19 08:00 /win16-50.vmx.map.tmp
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            41 Oct 19 08:57 /win16-50.vmx.tmp.map.tmp
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            41 Oct 19 08:57 /win16-50.vmxf.map.tmp
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            41 Oct 19 08:57 /win16-50.vmx~.map.tmp

Why are they there?

thanks
regards,

That was due to a bug we fixed in earlier 1.5 branch. You can safely delete them if you are using 1.5.1.3. There's nothing more to it than the inconvenience of the place, it was due to a missing root path. Just run

rm -rf /*.map.tmp

I need to upgrade then.

Yes. 1.5.1.3 is a fairly bug free release.
