Hi Anil,

The "Stale file handle" messages comes from the underlying file system.  It could be that the file you were trying ot access with the command has gone missing for some reason (reasons could include, it was deleted or moved or was on an NFS file system that is no longer mounted and many others).  To figure out why it's happening, more information is needed such as the exact command that was run, etc.
