    it's located in /home/username/

    I have no idea what it's for. Anyone know the correct permissions for it?

    I checked several accounts here and perms on them are 600. (not sure if that's correct, just what these are here.) ;)

    This may shed some light I think.

    I've got permissions of 600. Also .rnd is owned by root.wheel is that correct?

    Hi, Recently (about 3 weeks ago) I'm receiving backup errors messages concerning this file for only one domain that has been created in March 2008.
    I can confirm that this .rnd file has permission of 600 and is owned by root:wheel. I've searched for the .rnd files in some other domains and found that they have the same permissions/owners and they are not generating reports. Also, there are domains (user folders, let's say) not containing this .rnd file.....

    All these reports begun to arrive after upgrading to cPanel 11.24.4-S33345. The singularity is that that upgrade were done on Feb 1st., and actually I last upgraded to cPanel 11.24.4-S35075 on Apr 10th and the error messages still are coming.

    May this be a bug in pkgacct?

    Backup only sends one error email. Check the logs for other errors. Changing ownership to user:user worked for me.

    All the allocated accounts have the .rnd file with ownership root:wheel.
    if changing it to user:user will not cause any damage, how can I batch convert all the .rnd files?

    Sorry, I know this is an older post, but I just found a .rnd file in the /tmp directory. It was a small binary. Because it was on none of our servers in the /tmp it looked suspicious so I deleted it.

    What the heck is this .rnd file? What does it do?
