Free space in /dev/md2 partition

L0 Member

We have a Firewall PaloAlto with free space 509MB in partition /dev/md2, and 609MB in partition dev/md5, actually we need to upgrade the PanOS since 7.1.18 to 8.1.12, and there are 5 PANOS to upgrade, so the information is keep in /dev/md5 but before the installation We would like to know if the /dev/md2 root partition has little free space there could cause some trouble with the installation the new actualization?


admin@(active)> show system disk-space

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/md2              3.8G  3.1G  509M  87% /

/dev/md5              7.6G  6.6G  609M  92% /opt/pancfg

/dev/md6              3.8G  2.2G  1.5G  60% /opt/panrepo

tmpfs                 2.0G  116M  1.9G   6% /dev/shm

cgroup_root           2.0G     0  2.0G   0% /cgroup

/dev/md8               88G   63G   21G  76% /opt/panlogs

It is important know an other point of view before to install the actualization and prevent some crash or issue in the system.

And the correct proccess to install each upgrade.
