    Reducing size of /storage/seat vCenter Appliance

    Clichouille Lurker

      Hello there!


      I've done some research before posting here, but I could not find what I'm looking for.


      I think there was a problem during the initial deployment of my vCenter ... (Please see the attachments)


      How can I properly reduce the size of /storage/seat?


      Currently 514GB free on 542GB total size.

      I was thinking to reduce it at 100 Go, but I would take any advice on what would be the optimal size.


      Thank you in advance for any help you can

          I helped one of my customer to sort this issue:


          Action Plan:

          • Copy the existing data from /storage/seat to /storage/core (or any volume) where we have 50 GB free space.
          • Deploy a new vCSA of the same build and expand /storage/seat to 100 GB.
          • Unmount /storage/seat from existing vCSA and mount /storage/seat from new vCSA to the existing one.
          • Post this you will have to copy the data from /storage/core to /storage/seat.


          • Deploy a new vCSA with the same build.
          • Stop vpxd service
