How to Increase the Size of the Root Partition on AWS VM Series Palo Alto

L0 Member

Hello everyone.


I deleted some files from root partition(/dev/root) by referring to this URL.


However, it is still relatively high at over 90% and we are considering expanding the capacity of the root partition in anticipation of future operations.

I checked the following page, but it is the path "/opt/panlogs" and not the root partition.
So, does anyone know how to expand the size of the root partition?


Sincerely yours


Hi @Qui-Thi ,

I don't believe you can increase the root.

What instance type are you using? What OS version?

Are you experiencing any issues, or just want to increase it to be on the safe side?
