Install failing because of lack of disk space?

Post by wilh » Sep 11, 2018 10:40 am

Hi

I have a Veeam proxy server that has a 70Gb hard drive - nothing amazing, but, it's fine.

I decided to try Veeam Office 365 backup and ended up getting it ~February last year - the emails to backup was around 20Gb and it worked 100% fine.

We started using Sharepoint/OneDrive, so, I went to upgrade to version 2... During the install, it seems to take AGES (1 hour+), then fails.

Opening the log files, I see the following:

Code: Select all

I was wondering if anyone knows what it is doing and is there anything that can be done here short of upgrading the hard drive? I'm not sure what/why it's doing - there is about 20GB free on the machine prior to installation.

I tried running it again and I see the same - the hard drive gradually fills up.

Thanks

Hi William,

As you can see from the logs, VBO saves a copy of its configuration database during the upgrade, however, it's hardly could consume that much disk space.
Do you have the default installation with both VBO server and proxy running on the same machine? Can I also ask what size your C:\ drive is? And could you please check the content and size of your C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup365\ directory as well?

Thanks!

I think it's trying to upgrade your database version. I don't know why it is doing that and not really sure of the specifics of your situation.

But just from reading the log you can see it is trying to make a backup of your database. So that is going to double the amount of space required on your disk for a copy of the database which is being taken prior to upgrade.

Is there enough space on your disk for two copies of your database?

If you upgrade your database manually you may be able to manage this process and workaround the problem that way.

EJ,

I'm afraid you're missing the point that it's a configuration database which is backed up, and normally it's just about 100 MB.

Sorry for the slow response.

The server has a 80GB hard drive. There is a total of 20.7GB free.

The c:\programdata\Veeam\Backup365 folder is currently 39.3GB (sorry, larger than I first thought!) - Nearly all of which is being used by the ConfigDB folder.

Thanks,

William

William,

Are you upgrading from version 1.0? If so, this could be a known issue, which can easily be resolved with the help of our support team.

Just on the basis that the error comes after the action of backing up the old database. Also, observe the amount of time that passes between one event and the next. You also have: "Nearly all of which is being used by the ConfigDB folder"

I deliberately couched my initial response so as to be clear that I hadn't made any substantial attempt to fully understand what he was saying and that I was only commenting on the obvious problem shown in the log.

As it happens, now there is more info, I think it looks like that is the problem. :wink:

Hi Polina,

Thanks for this - is there anything I can do myself?

I had a NFR 10 for 1.0 (I'm a MVP and recommended Veeam a lot!), and I didn't realised it expired back in Feb... I just installed version 2 community edition which I see is now free for 10 (I only had a couple of personal boxes on this one machine...)

I never requested a NFR for version 2, however, I don't believe I'm eligible for support on community or NFR.

Thanks
