The root volume (/mroot) is dangerously low on space.

I am getting the following error message :

The root volume (/mroot) is dangerously low on space (<10MB). To make space

available, delete old Snapshot copies, delete unneeded files, and/or expand the

root volume's capacity.  After enough space is made available, reboot this

controller.  If needed, contact support personnel for assistance.

I am getting this warning when I am trying to login to the cluster.

I have deleted all snapshots, nosnap is ON for all volumes, also snapautodelete is ON.

I am getting this error after each 2-3 days. I dont understand why the volume is getting full each time.

Now, this time I have no snap shot for any volume, I dont know what to delete to free the volume.

I tried to increase the aggregate size by adding disks to it so that I can increase volume size, but I am unable to do that because failed to add disk to aggregate.

Could anybody let me know the steps to increase the aggregate size and volume size.

Re: The root volume (/mroot) is dangerously low on space.

Do one of the things it asks you.  For example, delete old snapshot copies:

Enter node level -- node run local

snap list vol0

snap delete -a vol0

Repeat these on all nodes which are complaining, and reboot each one.

In the future, think about snapshot autodelete for vol0, or in a non-production environment simply turn off snapshot schedule for vol0 (snap sched vol0 0 0 0)
