No space left on device but free space and inodes are available...

hi guys, me again Smilie

i recently opened a thread about physical to zone migration.

My zone is mounted over a "bigger" LUN (500GB) and step is now to move the old files, from the physical server, to my zone.
We are talking about 22mio of files.

i used rsync to do that and every time at 93.9% of rsync the task goes in error telling me "No space left on device"

here the infos i have collected...
Code:
df -h
/storedge              443G   427G    16G    97%    /storedge

Code:
df -o i /storedge
Filesystem     iused    ifree       %iused  mounted on
/storedge           22124418 33791806    40%   /storedge

and every time when this occures i cannot reboot my zones anymore... Smilie
Code:
[root@sunglb02ps] / => zoneadm -z archiprod boot
zoneadm: zone 'archiprod': "/usr/lib/fs/ufs/mount /dev/dsk/c4t6d7s4 /zones/archiprod/root/logs" failed with exit code 32
zoneadm: zone 'archiprod': call to zoneadmd failed

have somebody a suggestion for me?
thx

Have you done a zfs list to see if it says there is any free space?

There may be metadata overhead which may not be listed in the df -h command.

we don't use zfs at the moment and my affected zone is solaris9 branded! :-)

UFS?

Code:
man tunefs

the error here shows that the zone is in /zones, where does /storedge in this matter?

i don't know if i get it right, you have a physical server running Solaris 9 that you want to migrate to a branded zone on host sunglb02ps?

also, it might be that the rsync process has messed up the zone configuration. can you post your zone configuration and the list of the zones on the host? and if you may, also, post how you run your rsync command?

You should monitor the free space and inodes during the file transfer by regularly running both of the df commands. That will tell which ones of disk space or inodes is undersized.
