crashed somehow and i started receving msg that it has booted from BACKUP JUNOS IMAGE... so now its

1...my package 10.4 is correct as i have used it at other firewalls sucesfuly...my configuration is
correct as it is working...whats the issue then???why is it not validating my package 10.4???
2....in messages it said No spaceleft on device..so i did system storage cleanup,, still it did
not work well next time
3....If it its not validating,, Junos offers to use option no-validate to skip this check... should
i use it???this way if there is some problem with package,, that will not be identified???frankly
i could not get whats purpose of this check if it can be skipped??whats good in skiping it if it can
still give problem later???

Your issue appears to be related to disk space. I would try using the USB approach documented in the link below.

thnx for such good explanatory answer...geting it done through usb is really good choice and informative aswell..
but still i m confused, if u can guide me on:::
1...why system storage cleanup is not solving my disk space issue???
2....my query on no-validate??/what validate actually checks???whts good in no-validate if it will just continue by skipping validation and if there is some validation issue??will not that validation issue create some problem later??
