I installed vROPS 8.0 about 4-5 weeks ago in my home lab. For some unknown reason, the root file system is out of space. All 16 GB is filled on /dev/sda4.
Anyone encounter this problem before? I can't even login as root user when prompted to change password because root file system is out of space.
Any help would be appreciated.
Can you log in to ssh?
If you are successful in ssh, try this procedure to free up space.
(even if the procedure is for version 7.5)
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.
root@vrops [ ~ ]# df -h

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.
