Newb in trouble…/tmp: write failed, filesystem is full



  • I have an esxi pfsense setup. The start of the issue occurred when i removed one of hardrives from the server. I readded the harddisk in a couple minutes. I removed it just to check it out. I have a new harddisk and wasnt able to get it into the bay. I wanted to compare it to a harddisk that was already in the server. needless to say, i wasnt able to get the new harddisk working.  :-[ . I have sense removed pfsense and readded  to the vm back to esxi. I still have issues accessing the webgui. I keep getting the above error when i try to upgrade to 2.3. I am not sure what to do next sense i have this newb hurdle to overcome and i dont see anything specifically for my issue. I would appreciate any help or links..Thanks!

  • you are running a live-cd, not an install. live-cd's don't update.

    remove the .iso from your vm-settings, so it boots the virtual harddrive instead of the iso



  • Thanks Heper,
    I forgot option 99 and was working off the live cd.  Still working on other things but I should be okay for now. Thanks again for the reply.
