3.0 to 3.1 upgrade failed. Only access by IPMI. "storage configuration failed : not enaugh space for LVM requests".

Preflight-check says diskspace is ok...   Anyone been there?

Awaiting support.....

Support had to remove a snapshot (inst_SNAP_FACTORY) and did tidy up some files here and there to get more free space.

Then upgrade was possible.

Don't know if this is spesific to an old or 5220 appliance, but could be a good idea to have it "cleaned up" anyway.

Even, I seem to be getting nowhere in my search for help, by any chance do you have any specifics on what was cleaned up where (Linux Partition/folder???) V/R-Art

If old appliance, early software 2.5.x.x (5220) with long patchhistory, open a support Case to get help to tidy up in everything. Do not tidy up yourselves, leave it up to Veritas support. Or just carry on with the upgrade, it usually runs ok. If it failes and rollback, you must talk with support.

Just prior to upgrades I'd recommend doing something along these lines :

for PACKAGE in `rpm -qa |grep SYMC_NBAPP_addon_nb |egrep "7.6|7.7.1|7.7.2|7.7.3|8.0"`
do
    echo $PACKAGE
    sudo rpm -e ${PACKAGE}
done

for i in `ls -1 /config/dbbackup`
do
    rm -rf /config/dbbackup/${i}
done

rm /inst/patch/incoming/*addon* /inst/patch/incoming/*EEB*
rm /boot/initramfs-2.6.32-504.30.3.el6.x86_64.img.*

This should help cut down on space issues during upgrades. =)
