How do I increase disk space available to a directory?
I know very basic Unix commands s I would really appreacite the assistance of a Unix guru.
I am installing an application on a Sun server, when attempting to install I get an error that says I do not have enough sapce allocated for my install directory. Error says it has 7235m but needs 15360m. How can I increase the space allowed.
Check the output of the format command to check if the filesystem is smaller than the slice that it is mounted on. If it is, then you can use growfs to do your job. The man page will be available on any solaris system or you can go here. If the filesystem is already occupying the entire slice, then you may have to create a new filesystem on a new slice, possibly a new disk.
Thanks for the reply. What I found was since this was a preinstalled Solaris system, I accepted the defaults on the first time boot. All of the unused disk space was in /space. So wat I did was change the default path that the app installer wanted to use, for example /ACEMS/oradata, changed to /space/ACEMS/oradata.
