DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM WARNING:

Re: DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM WARNING:

Hello rariasn,

thanks for reply.

as suggested in that threadh, I checked /var , but it looks it has sufficient space.

$ bdf /var
Filesystem kbytes used avail %used Mounted on
/dev/vg00/lvol8 6291456 4558552 1721024 73% /var

Re: DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM WARNING:

Hi:

# ll /var/tombstones/ts*|wc -l

Clean /var/tombstones directory

The processor hardware logs will be placed into the directory /var/tombstones. A snapshot of the processor hardware logs of up to the last 100 boots is kept. The files are named ts99, ts98, ..., ts0. The highest numbered ts# file is the latest log. With that in mind, all the files under /var/tombstones EXCEPT ts99 could be removed to free up space in /var. These files can be removed with the rm command.

Re: DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM WARNING:

Which version of HP-UX are you using and the version of STM (OnluneDiag)?

# swlist | grep -i online

You may have to update STM/EMS if disk space is sufficient:
