The / Filesystem is low on diskspace or inodes VCSA6.0

Hi, need your assistance . Currently I cannot log into either the VSphere Web interface or the Client using root or SSO credentials to access the VCenter Server, or the individual hosts.

I do have root access to the VCSA via IP address on port 5480 and also via SSH.

Noticed that some of the services had not started after a reboot of the VCSA.

Had a warning about low disk space, SSH'd into the VCSA and found the following:

vcsa1:~ # df -h

Filesystem                            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/sda3                              11G   11G     0 100% /

Need to know how I can either grow that volume via CLI or force restart the services that will not start up.

List of services that will not start:

vmware-eam (VMware ESX Agent Manager)

vmware-invsvc (VMware Inventory Service)

vmware-mbcs (VMware Message Bus Configuration Service)

vmware-netdumper (VMware vSphere ESXi Dump Collector)

vmware-rbd-watchdog (VMware vSphere Auto Deploy Waiter)

vmware-vpostgres (VMware Postgres)

vmware-vpx-workflow (VMware vCenter Workflow Manager)

vmware-vpxd (VMware vCenter Server)

vmware-vsan-health (VMware VSAN Health Service)

vmware-vsm (VMware vService Manager)

vmware-vws (VMware System and Hardware Health Manager)

vsphere-client ()
