ONTAP Update failed (system management storage area is almost out of space)

Hello all,

 

During an update procedure, in the 1st step of downloading the imagem to the nodes (system node image update command),  the command failed with the following message:

 

Software update started on node XXX. Updating image2 with package http://.../95P10_q_image.tgz.
Downloading package. This may take up to 10 minutes.
Install Failed.
Cannot update or install image because the system management storage area is
almost out of space. To make space available, delete old Snapshot copies. For
further assistance, contact technical support.

 

Both root aggregates and vols have plenty of space. Does anyone have a clue on this?

 

Regards,

Pedro Rocha.

Kind Regards,

Hi,

 

Tried that.  The error does not specify a network issue as in the KB. Tried to point to a wrong HTTP path and the error changes. this seems pretty specific.

 

I'm gonna try connecting locally to the controller. In the mean time a support case was opened.

how many images do you have in the repo?

If the repository is what is listed in the system image show command, then 2.

Hello,

 

After changing my http server app it worked.

 

I was using Simple HTTP Server, it was not working.

 

Changed to HFS, image download was successfully.
