Remediation error

Jump to solution

Hi,

When doing a remediation under a clustermember in vc2.5 we see the baselines and also the updates.

When applying the updates thru a remediation it ends up with an error:

Insufficient disk space on datastore 'service console'

Tried to find out what causes this error, but can not find a solution.

Any guess is welcome.

thanks in advance

Go to the esx service console and as root write the following:

vdf -h

Then print the output here.

Hi,

Your / partition is full. That is why the update manager cannot copy the files to the partition. You need to find out why you are using

so much space on the partition.

I cannot find large files on the partition. Do you know a command which shows large files or the contents of the / partition ?

thanks for the help I appreciate it
