I'm trying to upgrade my NSMExpress box from 2008 to 2010. When it runs throught the preinstall checks it fails on the disk space;
Checking if installed HA Server is newer....................ok
Checking if system meets RAM requirement....................ok
Checking for sufficient disk space..........................FAILED
ERROR: Need 10422MB more space on partition: /var for the following directories: /var/netscreen/installerbackup
Specify a directory with adequate
disk space using -niSTAGINGDIR=directory.
Eg: nsm2010.1_servers_linux_x86.sh -niSTAGINGDIR=/var
See nsm2010.1_servers_linux_x86.sh -h for all command-line options.
So it wants another 10GB in the /var directory, hwich has about 3.5GB spare at the moment
[root@NSMXpress admin]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2 4.9G 2.7G 2.0G 59% /
none 2.0G 0 2.0G 0% /dev/shm

/dev/sda7 20G 4.9G 14G 27% /usr
/dev/sda6 82G 74G 3.5G 96% /var
/dev/sda3 49G 488M 46G 2% /var/cores
/dev/sdb2 225G 134G 79G 63% /var/netscreen/DevSvr
/dev/sda5 49G 712M 45G 2% /var/netscreen/DevSvr/profiler_data
/dev/sda8 20G 11G 7.9G 58% /var/netscreen/GuiSvr
I dont know what files i can remove to create the required disk space. I have also tried specifying another directory, with the -niSTAGINGDIR command as follows;
sh upgrade-os.sh nsm2010.1_servers_linux_x86.sh -niSTAGINGDIR=/usr Offline
But i get the same error....Any suggestions???

Dude you have 96% utilized in /var partition so remove some unwanted files from /var.
and than try you should have atleast 30% free space to install.

We had our database backups set to keep 8 days work of backups. There were about 5GB each so this was taking up lots of space.
We deleted a bunch of backups from /var/Netscreen/dbbackup
then set NSM to keep only 3 says of backups/
