Prime Infrastructure 3.0 Inline upgrade Works for 24 hours then disk gets filled up.


Hi there,


Upgraded our Prime Infrastructure from 2.2 to 3.0 and every day we have to restore from a snap we did after the upgrade. The Disk seems to have filled up. The message we get on the V Centre is



And the resources look full but cant get in to have a poke around to see what's causing it. Anyway of getting it to boot in a way so we can get in to see what the issue is or is it a TAC case?


When we get the Snap image up and running we do a ncs stop; ncs clean; ncs start which leaves us like this disk wise

Should I be looking to add some more disk?

when you ssh to the pi try (if you have noot used root before you need to use root_enable and make a password)


df -h

then you get a nice view of how disk space is on your pi



Hi David,


It all looks pretty ok to me. Not sure what could be filling it up. I have it backed up every week to an FTP server so its not like its storing backup jobs on it.

Hey Graham,

  Run into something like this before.  Once the /opt directory went nuts, TAC called it a database error had to rebuild/restore from backup. Check during the day to see if the used space rises dramatically.

  Another time the VM volume was full.  VM assigns the disk space but does not actually fence it off.  The volume was close to full and when Prime went to write more data V center threw an error.

Check for any created snapshots on the VM itself and delete them, this will free up disk space
