Hello Pranith,

Only 2 files appear in the logs over and over again:


getfattr -d -m . -e hex 
getfattr: Removing leading '/' from absolute path names
# file: 

getfattr -d -m . -e hex 
getfattr: Removing leading '/' from absolute path names
# file: 

I have checked both their md5 sums and are identical on all bricks, 
though I can't be 100% sure the files are not in use by the customer.
How do I go about erasing those changelog xattrs?

I can provide full logs, but this has been happening for a while and I 
imagine the logs are quite huge by now, let me know if you still need
