ESET Virtual Appliance Disk Space Root?


Recommended Posts



We have the ESET Virtual Appliance running on Hyper-V https://help.eset.com/esmc_deploy_va/70/en-US/donwload_a_virtual_appliance.html?deployent_on_hyperv.html  . It's reporting that the file system mounted at / has no free space on the webmin page, the VHD is a dynamically expanding disk  Is there a way to expand the root folder, I presume that's the one it means.

I think, the main question should be, what is in your root partition. I have about 900 endpoints and only 9GB used in root.

Couldn't tell really, searches for large files seemed to halt and never complete. In the end I fond a guide and resized it for now. Tried running the HTTP cache clean-up but didn't make any difference for me


Found a guide here https://turbofuture.com/computers/resizelinuxfilesystem  had to use xfs_growfs instead of  resize2fs 

fdisk -l
fdisk /dev/sda


shutdown - r now
fdisk -l
df -h
We want to increase the size of /dev/mapper/vg_redhat-lv_root.
pvcreate /dev/sda3
vgextend vg_redhat /dev/sda3 

 lvextend -l +12789 /dev/mapper/vg_redhat-lv_root 

resize2fs /dev/mapper/vg_redhat-lv_root (or xfs_growfs)

df -h

If the http proxy is enabled I would check the size of the cache folder and eventually empty it.

Have turned it off, not sure it was on previously but cleared the cache. Disk size has stayed constant since then at about 40GB


40.9 GiB used / 69.14 GiB free / 110.04 GiB total
