Hi,

You can run cleanup in the Active CP in order to free up some space. This command deletes the obsolete files in the local CP, but needs root credentials to be executed.

Additionally, you can execute a supportsave -R in order to delete all the stored core dumps in the CP, this may free some space.

You can also try to perform an hafailover to the Standby CP and check if the reboot process released some space in CP0.

In order to perform the commit again, you can execute firmwarecommit. Or even a firmwarecommit -f to force it anyway. But if you have an active maintenance contract, I recommend you to open a case with Brocade (or the proper vendor) in order to have the status of that CP checked.

Kind regards

felipon,

     Thanks... seems that there was a known defect, and i had to use root to log in and remove a large log file in the /var/logs/ directory.   "rm  /var/log/ag_desc.txt"  file  to clear up the space problem...  It eventually completed the commit and got all the versions to the same level.
