been having some odd happenings the last few days where services would be stopped in the morning on 2 of the VDP appliances, usually management and scheduled
this morning 4 services were stopped on both.
tried reboots on both (took a log bundle from one first)
after more than an hour at the 10 minutes initializing proxies message i logged a call with vmware for help as these are production backup servers.
waited several hours for a return email (after asking for a phone call) in the meantime reset the machines again.
support not much help, he just suggested it can take a couple of hours to boot and maybe take memory to 8GB for a faster boot.
after about 3 hours the console showed a complete boot, but no web access and no access through vc web client.
shutdown and added memory to both about 3 hours later same thing, console shows completed boot but no access.
logged into the console and checked the disks and found /space partition is 100% full. another vdp that is still working is about 5% full.
took a full ls of the partition and found a 32GB (the partition is 79GB) called mcs_data_dump.sql in path /space/avamar/var/mc/server_data
does not seem like something that should be there.
can anybody suggest if it is ok to rm this file to get the space back so i can get these backups going again.
There is now a patch for this issue. See the vdp_patch-188.8.131.52.run file located here
