AIM CUE Session won't load "No Space Left On Device"

I'm running a 2821 CME with CUE. Last night Unity started bouncing. I logged in got the "Session status is not available" Message.

When I log into "service-module service-Engine 0/1 session"

I can see the boot process which includes the error: (cat: write error: No space left on device)


EXCEPTION: /sw/info/ps: -5: event handler is dead


My favorite was this one right before it tries to restart itself:

It looks like things are stuck, rebooting ...

Is there a semi painless method to create some space & get this back online?

Re: AIM CUE Session won't load "No Space Left On Device"

i have the same problem, only I have a 1GB flash card. Any ideas on how to free space? other than reformating?

Re: AIM CUE Session won't load "No Space Left On Device"

What's the software version (sh software version)? Once the space is all used up, the only thing to do is to run the cleanup utility from the boot helper image (the software you can TFTP to the CUE and in older versions was the only way to load software). That will erase the logs and try to compact some stuff to free up enough space to at least boot. If it can, first thing to do is to make a backup--if you haven't one. Once that's done, get the version. Some of the older versions had various defects where it would fill up when it's not supposed to. In fact, it should really never fill up the flash drive. That's why everything on the card (voicemail space and such) is all carved up when a user account is created, and other things like trace files all have known maximum sizes. So chances are a newer software version would help; but we'd need to know what you're running to even guess. A lot of these issues are documented in the release notes of the software, btw.


Re: AIM CUE Session won't load "No Space Left On Device"

Yeah, I actually found that disk cleaner and tried it. I let it run for 1/2 hour and figuring the system was hung, did a cold reboot of the router. Eventually it came back up along with voicemail, but logging into the service module crashes the whole router. I think it is pretty old software - when I do a "ser ser 0/0 stat" It says it is Unity Express module 2.1. And there is a disk full bug not related to the 256 MB flash drive bug for 2.1.1. So I'll try backing up and upgrading. Maybe I just need to let the aim module run a bit longer before logging into it.

If I can't get in, is there a way to format the flash drive such that I can do a completely clean reinstall?

Interestingly, I did grab this debug from the router as it crashes when I try to log into the service module:
