Re: Expedition root directory keeps growing

from the cli you will need to issue the command:

 

expedition@Expedition:/home/userSpace$ sudo su

[sudo] password for expedition:

root@Expedition:/home/userSpace# whoami

root

root@Expedition:/home/userSpace#

 

Now that you are root you can cd into the projects directory and into each directory to check for backup files

 

root@Expedition:/home/userSpace# cd projects/

root@Expedition:/home/userSpace/projects# ls -al

Re: Expedition root directory keeps growing

you will want to remove the newer files first. 

 

But looking at the size of the files, these specific files are MB in size so I don't know how much of an impact they will have to free up disk space, but if those files are not needed they can be deleted.

Re: Expedition root directory keeps growing

it also look as if you expenaded the size of the default partiion and also added a second disk. 

 

were you priginally storing traffic logs in the /PALogs directory? If yes have you checked that directory for any traffic log files that can be deleted?

Re: Expedition root directory keeps growing

No I am exporting the logs to the second HDD that I created. there is nothing in the PALogs directory. I cant get the database started either. 

L4 Transporter

Re: Expedition root directory keeps growing

the DB cannot start likely due to the lack of storage left in the primary HDD.

 

if you are free for a zoom conference monday or tuesday afternoon feel free to send an email to fwmigrate (at) paloaltonetworks.com

Re: Expedition root directory keeps growing

You have two issues here.

 

One is that you are running out of space in your system, and you should try to find out what is taking this space.

You already started to find out this process.

 

The other issue, which may have arose due to the lack of space, is that mariadb crashed and left the tc.log in an inconsistent state.

Check this thread

https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/Expedition-Discussions/Incorrect-User-or-Password-from-GUI/td-p...

with the last posts, that it would tell you how to delete the tc.log file and restart the mariadb server again.

 

Anyhow, do not forget to keep with the first task, to make sure that you won't run out of space again soon.

Re: Expedition root directory keeps growing

Looks like even though I have the logs exporting to another hard drive, and have the temporary data structure folder also set to that other hard drive, expedition is still either moving or copying log files to the /data directory. Why is this?
