When trying to upgrade VCNS 5.5.3 to 5.5.4 I was presented with this error:
Message: Could not untar /common/em/downloads/image/image-vsm-vsm-5.5.4-2504419.img.dist
This suggested to me there was a partition full somwhere on the vShield Manager VM
To check this:
Open the console of the VSM VM.
Default username/passwords are:
Username: admin Passowrd: default Enable: default #' show filesystems
As you can see the the root partition is full.
I tried to clear any log files first of all but that had no effect:
# purge log manager # purge log system
In the end I just rebooted the VM whiched cleared some temporary space and left me with 4.3GB available
