Severity: 3-Major


Unable to download new file objects due to "exceeds storage quota" error.


Inability to add new file objects


Default storage quota is 500MB, if use wants to store more than that amount the quota must be changed.


To extend the storage quota, use the restcurl command to set a new value. Current value is obtained by: # restcurl cm/system/file-object-configuration/storageDir { "directoryPath": "/var/config/rest/fileobject", "generation": 4, "kind": "cm:system:file-object-configuration:fileobjectconfigurationstate", "lastUpdateMicros": 1491948519420631, "maxFilespaceBytes": 524288000, "name": "storageDir", "selfLink": "https://localhost/mgmt/cm/system/file-object-configuration/storageDir" } Use restcurl with PATCH verb to update maxFilespaceBytes: restcurl -X PATCH cm/system/file-object-configuration/storageDir -d '{"maxFilespaceBytes":1000000000}' { "name": "storageDir", "directoryPath": "/var/config/rest/fileobject", "maxFilespaceBytes": 1000000000, "generation": 5, "lastUpdateMicros": 1491948923168173, "kind": "cm:system:file-object-configuration:fileobjectconfigurationstate", "selfLink": "https://localhost/mgmt/cm/system/file-object-configuration/storageDir" }

Fix Information

File grooming issues are fixed. Any excess config files that are not used in the system are removed. Since these excess files were occupying file-quota space, import failed in earlier releases. This should resolve import issues related to file-quota overage.
