touch,mkdir,vi fails on all directories under /usr

issuing touch,mkdir,vi and other writing commands fails only on folders under /usr directory.But goes well when writing on any folder under / except for /usr.

Re: touch,mkdir,vi fails on all directories under /usr

what is the os version?
what is the error you get? (o/p)
pls post the output of 'mount -v' command.

Re: touch,mkdir,vi fails on all directories under /usr

ex. # cd /usr
# touch xxx
touch:xxx cannot create

# vi noel
**** /var/tmp/noel No space left on device

it is a 4.0g version and an LSM bootdisk

That looks like a problem. Perhaps you
should delete some useless files on that file
system.

> touch:xxx cannot create

That looks like a different problem.

"df /usr" would be useful too.

I'd vote for a plain "df -k", but I was
waiting to see if we could get an answer to
any question before adding more to the list.

Re: touch,mkdir,vi fails on all directories under /usr

sorry for the late reply, but unfortunately i cant provide the answers right now.it's our client's system located remotely.But to give you some, last time i checked, df -k is normal.no clone fileset is present so disk space i think is not the problem.checking also the inodes by df -i, it also has mode inodes to use.meaning more inodes, more files that can be created.as of now, im opting to have it backup and restore it after.any comments on these?thanks for the replies.

Might be fileset quota. How about a "showfsets" on the domain?
