Environment


Reload (all versions)

Situation


Is there a way to get a backup to run if the root partition is at 99%

Resolution

Yes, there is a conf file that can be modified that will disable the root partition disk space check.

The gwavareload.conf contains the following line. When set to 0 the disk space check is not skipped.

GRE_DAEMON_SKIP_DISK_SPACE_CHECK="0"

Changing this to equal 1 will allow a job to run despite the root partition being 99% full.

To make the change the gwavareload.conf will need to be modified;

1) edit /opt/beginfinite/reload/gwavareload.conf

2) modify the existing line

 GRE_DAEMON_SKIP_DISK_SPACE_CHECK="0"
 and change it to
 GRE_DAEMON_SKIP_DISK_SPACE_CHECK="1"

3) reloadd restart

4) all jobs from this point forward will use this setting.
