Update Problems – No Space left

This post was originally published on this site

Hi COmmunity,


hope you can help me with this one.

I have this issue with multiple Customers at multiple sites.


I usually patch the Servers with the help of https://esxi-patches.v-front.de/ESXi-6.7.0.html

It shows in 3 simple commands (firewall off, update, firewall on) how to patch the ESX Server.

That worked fine in the past.

Nowadays, I almost always get the following issue:


[root@Server:~] esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-6.7.0-20201004001-standard

> -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml


[Errno 28] No space left on device

Please refer to the log file for more details.



Sometimes it lists nothing like shown here, sometimes it lists a specific vib that has not enough space.

I’ve enabled swap and I have roughly 1TB of free space.


It affects all of my Servers (6.0, 6.5, 6.7 and 7.0)

ANY hint is greatly appreciated.
