    I found this one one of the servers and the problem was that /dev/null was a file instead of a device.

    /dev/null should look like:

    crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 1, 3 Nov 1 07:57 /dev/null

    if it is:
    -rw-rw-rw- then it is a file not a device.

    remove the file and create a new device with the following

    mknod /dev/null c 1 3

    After you create the new device you should have no more issues with this 451 error.
