Applying 6,7U2 build 13644319 patch - [Errno 28] No space left on device

Hi,

I've just this afternoon built a new test ESXI 6.7U2 host using the latest ISO file which is 6.7U2 build 13006603.

The host has 16GB RAM. I have two disks - one 40GB for the installation - ESXI has allocated some of this to a datastore, plus an additional 80GB allocated as a datastore.

I have told ESXI to use the second (80GB) data store for the swap/cache files as recommended.

I'd like to apply the 13644319 patch, but am getting  [Errno 28] No space left on device erros when trying to apply it.

I've placed the following in a script:

esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e true -r httpClient

esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-6.7.0-20190504001-standard \

-d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml

esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e false -r httpClient

The output displays the following:

[OSError]

[Errno 28] No space left on device

Please refer to the log file for more details.

So I tried the guide here:

https://nullsec.us/esxi-update-fails-with/

But have had no success:

[root@esxitest:/tmp] esxcli software vib install -f -v /tmp/VMware_locker_tools-

light_10.3.5.10430147-12986307.vib

Installation Result

   Message: Host is not changed.

   Reboot Required: false

   VIBs Installed:

   VIBs Removed:

   VIBs Skipped: VMware_locker_tools-light_10.3.5.10430147-12986307

Any ideas would be much appreciated. It has suggested removing old log files, but I wouldn't know what to remove, plus this being a new installation, there should not be much in the way of old unused files.

The main reason for wanting to apply  6,7U2 build 13644319 patch is to fix the issue where the web interface crashes when trying to create a VM from an OVF/OVA.

Many thanks again for your help.

Can you verify there is no space issue by running command :

vdf -h

Great!!

Do a "ls -l" on the root and check there for unnecessary file, may be a log bundle would be there. Ping the output here as well.

Move this vib to some other datastore. If you don't need it remove it with "rm name_of_file" otherwise move it :

mv VMware_locker_tools-light_10.3.5.10430147-12986307.vib /vmfs/volumes/name_of_datastore

After doing that run vdf -h again and see if that reflects the free space, if it does not, still try the upgrade.

Still if it fails with the same error, then reboot so that changes get reflected and then upgrade.

I hope this helps.

Why are we installing that vib first, I am sure now if you run vdf -h again that vib should again be present there.

If that is the case, please run the upgrade command first and check.

If that is the case, then we might need to check the logs further....Alternatively we can try with offline bundle but there is something wrong we need to check the logs....

Thanks - looking at /var/log/esxcli.log shows the following when I run my script:

Please refer to the log file for more details.

Which log files do I need to show output for?

I faced this issue in 6.5 . Support team suggested this is due to internal memory like ramdisk, vmkernel of said ESXi is going low. This was marked as a known issue & the fix was to update environment to 6.5 U3. Please check with support that is it same with 6.7 and do they have released any update for 6.7 if this is the same issue.

To get around Errno 28

I burned the 6.7U3 ISO image to a USB stick

Booted the host on the USB stick

Upgraded the existing installation

Rebooted
