Opened: Jul 21, 2021
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

The /var partition can fill up and the bulk of the data in /var is in /var/lib/pgsql/data/base. This will result in incomplete configuration of PostgresDB. This can cause recurring errors in postgres/bootstrap logs.

Impact

The upgrade can fail if the disk fills up during upgrade. Or you will see the device left in an inoperable state following a successful upgrade. Usually the latter occurs.

Conditions

This occurs due to certain RBAC configurations (in postgresDB prior) present prior to the upgrade (for example, a large number of custom roles)

Workaround

None
