Over time old logs and old software starts to build up in the CVM /home directory.
The following error will be observed in Prism
Log onto a CVM of the cluster in question with the ‘nutanix’ account. The default password is ‘nutanix/4u’ but this may have been changed in your environment.
Check the /home usage for all the CVM in the cluster with the following command
allssh df -h
Output will look like this for each of the CVMs in the Nutanix cluster
Use the commands below on the CVM to remove old log files and installer files from /home on all the CVMs on the cluster
allssh rm -rf /home/nutanix/data/cores/*allssh rm -rf /home/nutanix/data/binary_logs/*allssh rm -rf /home/nutanix/data/log_collector/*allssh rm -rf /home/nutanix/data/ncc/installer/*
Once all the command have been run rerun the ‘allssh df -h’ and check the output and ensure the /home is under 80% now for each of the CVMs.
If the /home is still above 80% contact Nutanix support for further troubleshooting.
