What do we do if the lines to be modified in the 'log4j.properties' file do not exist?

We are running into a similar issue where by the storage/log/vmware/sso is at 100%

VCSA version 6.0.0.30100

You need to first determine what exactly is consuming the space before you attempt to solve it.

Use du -sh * | sort -nr and determine which dir is consuming more space.
