This may be a dumb question but is there a way to find out how much free disk space you need to perform the upgrade in the /usr/openv and the /tmp filesystems.
I ran the upgrade yesterday and had lots of issues with /tmp in particular.
Solved! Go to Solution.
yes I have been through the release notes and the 7.5 upgrade guide there really isn't a lot of information on how much free disk space is required.
For instance when I installed off of my downloaded copy of 7.5 when the server install was running it failed because it was using /tmp to unpack the file basically it filled /tmp.
I can't find anything that reccommends how much free space is required in /tmp

When installing on an HP-IA 11.31 media server, you can encounter a situation
where there is not enough allocated space in /tmp. The NetBackup 184.108.40.206 patch
installation requires about 2,435,971 kilobytes of space. Before you install the
NetBackup, make sure there is enough allocated space in /tmp.
I found a limit in /tmp definition in the fstab/vfstab in /etc and removed it to allow my install to work.
