Thanks.....but I cannot login to ssh. I can log in to the console as admin only. If I try to login as root to enable SSH I am prompted to change password but it fails because / is out of space.
I think the KB you sent is more for the /storage/log directory which is part of a logical volume on different disk. My issue is that the / filesystem is full which is /dev/sda4
I cannot find any KB pertaining to the root file system being full on 8.x.
Well this is odd. I rebooted the vrops appliance without taking the node offline since I could not access the /admin GUI with http error. After boot up I could set the root password on the console. After login the / file system has 11 GB free out of 16 GB.

If you can get to the shell do a
du -hs *
In the output you can see which folder is taking up all the space.
Else mount a (Redhat/Centos) rescue CD to the VM and reboot the VM. Prompt to start the CD and then try the above command.
