I'm trying to stage patches on an ESX that has been upgraded from 3.0 on. Now when I try to stage paches and upgrade it tells me I do not have enough space.
My /Boot is at 76 percent, and the rest are all low percents.
what files can I remove out of the /boot that will help.
I have no need to go back to 3.x so I know that I should be able to delete some .
any help would be appreciated.
What about vSphere/vCenter server ? Does it have enough free space ?
Once I came accross similar kind of issue, It was caused due to low free space at vSphere/vCenter server
~ Do not forget about points,if you found answer useful
As written before you need space on the / filesystem and then on a local VMFS datastore.
What's the output of vdf -h command?
See also the upgrade guide for more info:
There is plenty of space on the VCenter server, as both the C: and 😧 have over 50G of free space
here is the vdf -h on the esx

You partitions seems fine.
Sorry no other idea.
Try to do not stage the patches and simple remediate the hosts.
