i am using few AIX unix server for my company.we used to take the server backup and for that reason we shut down the services and instances before the backup.we kept the screenshots of the services before the backup.once the backup is over we used to bring up the services but last day while bringing up the services we got and error as “no space left on device”.can anyone suggest why we are getting such errors.
Linux server getting error as no space left on device while copying
some of the filesystem on the server is not having some free space due to that you are getting errors.
give the command df –k and you will be able to see the disk usage on all the filesystem.if you are using some file system location like home ,export or may be in the etc and there is no free space then you will be getting the errors.go the particulars location where you require to clean up some space.check the file or sub folder which you want to delete and give the command rm filename .you can remove the file one by one.once you cleared up some files give the same command df –k then you will be able to see the cleard space compared to last data size.next time when you give the command to start up the services you will not get the space error.check the above step and try step by step process.
