Luckily there are straightforward procedures to investigate what files are filling the root partition and how to get rid of them.

Typical symptoms?

  • ISO staging of the update fails
  • vCSA update fails at step #/#
  • some vCSA services cannot be started

  1. shell.set –enabled true
  2. shell
  3. df -h
