How to increase size for /locker

Got an ESXi, 6.7.0, 13004448 environment which the esxi is installed on 32GB SD card.

I'm trying to update the VMware Tools files for ESXi host but failed, it seemed that the size of /locker is too small to store the new VMware tools files.

As shown in figure below.


Storing the VMware tools files to another location is currently not my option therefore I had to place them in the original directory(the /locker).

I had no experience on increasing size of the /locker and could only found clues such as this KB, but totally not sure.

can anyone provide some hints please?
