what does /dev/pts means?

when I install redhat 7.3 , I met error messages
    "an error occurred when trying to create /dev/pts : input/output error"

and stop it's installation.
what's problem?

thanks a lot.


1. Wrong permissions for /dev/pts/0 and /dev/pts/1

After resoring a msysbk I can't open terminals on a 43P.
Telnet works for all users, but when trying to open a aixterm or something else
I get the message in errorlog that when running dtexec it has wrong permissions
 for /dev/pts/0 or /dev/pts/1... This does not occur for the root user.

What do I have to change, and why does it occur after restoring the backup?

Thanks and greetings,
