    VCSA 6.0 cannot start vsphere-client service

      Hi,

      I have an VCSA 6.0 which cannot start vsphere-client service, the error says:

      Stderr =

      2019-09-18T12:12:58.884Z   {

          "resolution": null,

          "detail": [

              {

                  "args": [

                      "Command: ['/sbin/service', u'vsphere-client', 'start']\nStderr: "

                  ],

                  "id": "install.ciscommon.command.errinvoke",

                  "localized": "An error occurred while invoking external command : 'Command: ['/sbin/service', u'vsphere-client', 'start']\nStderr: '",

                  "translatable": "An error occurred while invoking external command : '%(0)s'"

              }

          ],

          "componentKey": null,

          "problemId": null

       

      When I try to see logs, it shows:

      Command> com.vmware.showlog -l

      Traceback (most recent call last):

        File "/usr/lib/applmgmt/support/scripts/showlog.py", line 105, in <module>

          main()

        File "/usr/lib/applmgmt/support/scripts/showlog.py", line 78, in main

          DisplayFiles(fileList)

        File "/usr/lib/applmgmt/support/scripts/showlog.py", line 42, in DisplayFiles

          tempFile = tempfile.mktemp()

        File "/opt/vmware/lib/python2.7/tempfile.py", line 360, in mktemp

          dir = gettempdir()

        File "/opt/vmware/lib/python2.7/tempfile.py", line 269, in gettempdir

          tempdir = _get_default_tempdir()

        File "/opt/vmware/lib/python2.7/tempfile.py", line 212, in _get_default_tempdir

          ("No usable temporary directory found in %s" % dirlist))

      IOError: [Errno 2] No usable temporary directory found in ['/tmp', '/var/tmp', '/usr/tmp', '/root']

       

      It seems there is no free space in disk, but I cannot enable shell; there is another way to free space?

      Can I install another instance of VCSA in the same vcenter?

       

      Kind regards,

      David
