Insufficient space available on boot device

Hi

I want to update my FAS3070 from 8.0.2P3 to 8.1.3P3 and always get the error below.

Did someone had this error?

Re: Insufficient space available on boot device

Is this a 256mb card?

a 3070 should have a 1GB card.  A lot of of the older filers had 256mb CF cards.

Re: Insufficient space available on boot device

Thanks for the reply.

Do I have to poweroff and check the hardware or is there a command to see the size of the cf card?

Re: Insufficient space available on boot device

Do a "sysconfig"  .  It should show CF card in slot 0. I have outputed a sample "sysconfig" below.

slot 0: FC Host Adapter 0c

        slot 0: FC Host Adapter 0d

        slot 0: Intel ICH USB EHCI Adapter u0a (0xdf801400)

                boot0   Micron Technology Real SSD eUSB 2GB, class 0/0, rev 2.00/11.10, addr 2 1936MB 512B/sect (4DF0022700092520)

        slot 1: SAS Host Adapter 1a

                24 Disks:            20341.3GB

                1 shelf with IOM3

let us know what size it is.

Re: Insufficient space available on boot device

The size of the cf card is 1GB:

        slot 0: ATA/IDE Adapter 0e (0x000001f0)

                0e.0   STEC NACF1GM1U-B11   01/17/07  977MB  512B/sect (STI1M78607240042427)

Re: Insufficient space available on boot device

Now I've tried again with 8.0.5. Same error but different space available?? ^^

Someone a solution maybe to delete the older images on the cfcard and get some space?

Re: Insufficient space available on boot device

If you have support I would create a case.

If you do not have support I would get another CF card and try again.

398mb?  I have not seen any ONTAP package that large. Something is wrong.  How large is the file?

do a "version -b".  this will show what is on the CF card.

Re: Insufficient space available on boot device

I don't have support on it because it is just a lab system.

The file is about 175mb so it's definitely something wrong with it.

This is the output:

Re: Insufficient space available on boot device

I guess this is a single head.  Maybe you could try a netboot image fresh?  Do you need the data?

Re: Insufficient space available on boot device

Thanks for your reply Nate. I need the data (Virtual Machines,CIFS). I will copy them away and do a netboot install.
