Fixed In:

Opened: Aug 14, 2014
Severity: 1-Blocking

Symptoms

Example: [root@localhost:/S1-green-P:Active:Standalone] config # tmsh show sys hardware Unexpected Error: Can't create temp directory, /var/tmp/tmsh/DfRf5Z, errno 28] No space left on device

Impact

The system cannot be managed.

Conditions

Typical activity that will fill up the "/shared" filesystem is storage of too many software images in "/shared/images", or leaving too many configuration archives in "/var/tmp". (/var/tmp is a symlink to /shared/tmp)

Workaround

Remove some files

Fix Information

'tmsh' remains functional even if the "/shared" filesystem is full.
