Firmwaredownload failed Out of disk space....

Hello

I'm trying to upgrade an 4024 blade switch to 6.2.2.f, but if fails because there's not enough space on the secondary partition

Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on

/dev/root               121008     93144     21620  81% /

/dev/hda1               120992     99080     15668  86% /mnt

Free space=12931072, fabos-libs package size=11114979, Required space=13212131.

I've run the cleanup script and there are no core or dump files left on the switch.

On my other 4024 switches the upgrade went fine and a df on one of those shows:

Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on

/dev/root               122976     94100     22528  81% /

/dev/hda2               122992     94124     22520  81% /mnt

try with command "supportsave -R" if a dump file is available.

Hi,

If you've executed a 'cleanup' and "supportsave -R" and that is not enough, you could try to go to /mnt and check which folders/files are using that extra 5% that you need in order to perform the ugprade. You could try to use command:

du -m |sort -n

to list and sort by size all the directories in /mnt. then you can compare this switch with the rest and you may find some file you could delete (Move out of the switch). On the other hand, a reboot is allways a good option...

Thank you felipon!

After running the command I saw that var/logs was quite big, and in it there was a big txt-file from 15sep 2010

ag_decs.txt

I deleted that and df showed 75% used on mnt and the firmwareupgrade worked

Re: Firmwaredownload failed Out of disk space....

I tried all of the steps recommended here and other sites and 'df' still:

 

C7_B4_SAN:root> df

Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on

/dev/root               242104    162148     67460  71% /

/dev/hda2               241648    204008     25168  89% /mnt

 

I opened a call with HPE and they recommended the same steps like supportsave and

cleanup.

 

Finally I saw the 'firmwarecleaninstall' command. That wipes both partitions and

installs the firmware you specify.  YOU MUST DO 'configupload' FIRST!!!

 

The clean install erases all of your configuration, licenses, zones, etc. So

make sure you do the 'configupload'.   After the update then you do 'configdownload'

after you do a 'switchdisable'. I think it does 1 or 2 reboots.

That was my solution.  Now 'df' shows:

C7_B4_SAN:root> df

Filesystem 1k-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on

/dev/root 242104 151876 77732 66% /

/dev/hda2 241648 151780 77396 66% /mnt

 

And I was able to run 3 fw revs up to 7.4.2
