This issue has been solved. See solution.


I recently install a Master Server in Windows, now im installing the clients, one of them is SOLARIS, and the problem is that the ROOT have inside the /opt, the ROOT filesystem have 98% full so i dont have space to install the client, maybe there is a way to redirect the client installation or install on another Filesystem?

thanks for the help

you can create a soft link form the file system from which you have the enough space..

show us the df -k output form the client

Client software is by default installed in /usr. That is probably also part of root filesystem?

As per nagalla's excellent post, if you show us output of 'df -k' we can help you to create the symbolic link.

You will also have to ensure that there is enough space in /tmp for the duration of the installation.

It easy to extend a file system on UNIX - you should talk to the local UNIX admin if possible.

Assumption is the mother of all mess ups.

"the ROOT filesystem have 98% full"

Like living on the edge? Altho' if it was 1Tb filesystem 2% free space could be seen as adequate!

use below 2 commands

mkdir -p  /respaldos/usr/openv/    -> to create a folder


one of my friends said.. it should be   :-) thank you 

ln -s /respaldos/usr/openv /usr/openv   --> to create symbolic link

<I<EDIT done>>

ls -ld /usr/openv/ it wil show you the original location for the files..
