Hi everybody,

 

Could someone can solve this or show me what files in the bootflash?

 

I found some documents on Cisco site ,  the bootflash utilization should equal.

 

One of them is 30% and another is almost 70%

Hi Hele

See attachment, how you can find core dump files, and show tech .tar files. From there, you can also delete them.

Hi Hele

Most likely you store many UCS versions ! just go and do a cleanup, delete old versions and you will recover quickly disk space.

Hi Walter,

 

I used the show tech-support command to figure out what files in the bootflash.

 

There are dir bootflash for FIA and FIB resepctively.

 

I couldn`t found any file esle.

 

Is there have any hidden files in bootfflash?

Could it be, that there are tar files from show tech which were not deleted ?

they are under workspace:///techsupport/.....

Did you have a TAC case and installed any plugins ?

HI Walter,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

As far as I know, there are three partition in FI--bootflash; workspace and opt respectively.

 

In this scenario only bootflash exceed 70%, it wasn`t generated a warning message that workspace has been exceed 70% event there are lots show techsupport in workspace partition.

 

Here is a show file in FIb, I thought the workspace has enough space.

cqu-ucs-B(local-mgmt)# ls workspace:/

Do you have any other idea for this?

Did you check, if there are any core dumps around ?

I am sorry , I have no idea how to check the core dump.

 

I had checked many  documents, the only thing is the below:

 

If Cisco UCS Manager reports that the bootflash is out of space, delete obsolete bundles on the Packages tab to
free up space. To view the available space in bootflash, navigate to the fabric interconnect on the Equipment tab
and expand the Local Storage Information area on the General tab.

Hi Hele

See attachment, how you can find core dump files, and show tech .tar files. From there, you can also delete them.

Walter.

HI Walter,

 

It is really my appreciate!

 

Its a lots of core dump files in there, it will be fine if I delete them?

 

Check the dates; maybe I would copy the 2 recent ones off the UCS fabric interconnect; then delete them all.

This however makes only sense, if you would like to open a Cisco TAC case; they would then analyze what the problem really was.

Good luck

Walter.

Yes , I think the TAC will be better for this ,but but but this UCS is out of services.

 

Haha, whatever, this issue has been fixed.

 

Thank you Walter.

Check the Equipment>Equipment>Firmware Management? Packages and share the screenshot here.

Has been done already in a previous post; see above !

Oh I hadnt seen it... so he is running 2.0.4!  I think there were a couple of bugs for this, I just cant find them... better open a TAC case to dig deeper.
