No space left on device - error


Trying to build a system via Golden Image, booting off the Ignite Server, getting this error message:

The configuration process has incurred an error, would you like
to push a shell for debugging purposes? (y/[n]):

Hi:

And your question is? Are you sure you are booting what you think you are? Is the target disk large enough?

Regards!

Re: No space left on device - error

It has 3-73GB drives. I think it only picks up 2 during the install. And I think the original image encompassed 3 disks. that's my theory, I have to double check that.

Yes, I am certain I am booting the right machine.

correction, the source machine (Where the Golden Image was taken) has only 2x73GB drives, so not sure what's going on.

It's probably stuffing the entire image (2 disks) in a signle disk.

You should interrupt the ignite process and go in the configuration screens and add another disk as needed.

Shalom,

Step back.

What is the size of the image?

I don't care what the disk size of the imaged system is, that is meaningless.

What is the bdf output of the source system?

That is a good measure, at least for the volume groups in the image for how much target space is needed.

Ignite has an interface that lets you as part of recovery change file system sizes to adjust for different disk environments.

Your golden image configuration file on the Ignite server needs to include information on the disk size and layout for the target/client system.

You seem to be the victim of your own lack of planning at this point.

Re: No space left on device - error

Part of the golden image setup is to run ' /opt/ignite/lbin/archive_impact -t -g ' on your image and save the results in your config file.

Did you do this?

If you did, Ignite should know how big your image is and prevent you from trying to install it on a target that is too small.

Re: No space left on device - error

Yes I did ran archive_impact -t -g

and put the results in /var/opt/ignite/data/Rel*23/core_archive.cfg


Not only that but added all 3 73GB drives to the pool during the install. The original image had 2 73GB drives.

Still blows up during the install due to "No space left on device". How is that possible?

Re: No space left on device - error

Could this be because I did not run save_config?

Re: No space left on device - error

Perhaps. Incorporating some save_config syntax in your golden image config can help replicate disk volumes as they were setup on the original machine.

Without that, you'd need to setup your disks, volumes, and filsystems interactively on install in the "File System" tab.
