Problem installing Progress 9.1c

I had some space problems after installing Progress 9.1c. My /var file system was full but Progress tells me that it shouldn't affect any other file system except the one where I installed the product which was of course, another one. Is this true? there any log or something that could affect my file system /var?...

Re: Problem installing Progress 9.1c

I have not install Progress before but I can give some comment that may help. Typically in a 3rd party installation the application will be installed in /opt and 2 other directories MAY be involved ..
1) /etc/opt/
2) /var/opt/
For 1) it's usually the location for the application configuration file (pretty static). For 2) it's where the log files for the application is located. So if you suspect your /var is full after the installation check in /var/opt. If you cannot find anything in /var that is related to Progress then it may be due to some temporary files being created in /var/tmp and not deleted after the install. Check there too. Otherwise it may be not related to Progress at all. Check your system log files in /var/adm/syslog and /var/adm.
Hope this helps ..

I've installed Progress 9 and I agree, it should not affect /var, assuming you selected somewhere else for the install directory. Where is your dlc directory located?

Sorry, I know you said you did not install dlc in /var, but there are many links into /var.

Re: Problem installing Progress 9.1c

Hi Mario,

did you also have a look into /var/tmp? Perhaps during Progress files have been stored there but not been deleted after?

Allways stay on the bright side of life!
