I am getting the error, even tho I have good amount of disk space.
Can someone help me take a backup on FTP directly, bypassing the local repository on the Prime.
admin/admin# backup backupFeb20th2014 repository defaultRepo application NCS
% Creating backup with timestamped filename: backupFeb20th2014-140220-1205.tar.gpg
INFO : Cannot configure the backup directory size settings as the free space available is less than the current database size.
You do not have enough disk space available in your repository to complete this backup.
DB size is 45 GB
Available size is 26 GB
Please refer to the command reference guide for NCS and look at the /backup-staging-url/ command reference to setup the backup repository on an externally mounted location
% Internal error: couldn't create backup file
admin/admin# sh disk
temp. space 3% used (39440 of 1967952)
disk: 1% used (181976 of 29583412)
all internal filesystems have sufficient free space
Go to Solution.
Well you only have 26.5GB available and the DB shows it needs 45GB.

From the console, what does this show:
admin/admin# dir disk:/defaultRepo
Directory of disk:/defaultRepo

I have an 1.4 OVA ready on the ESXi, i am just replicating this database on a new Prime, its not even letting me take a local backup.
you should also know this this code is effected with this bug
CSCue35666 which corrupts the oracle database from time to time, i doubt if this has something to do with the bug.
Process for backing up NCS database of external server.
1.configure your windows as NFS server, hanewin is easiest to find and operate.
2.mount the NFS root folder with NCS
[root@admin ~]# mount 10.85.6.37:/mywinshare /mnt/nfs
3.define the staging folder.
4.make sure you can see all the files in NFS root folder from NCS, if mouting is good.
[root@admin ~]# cd /mnt/nfs
[root@admin nfs]# ls
5.Create a new Repo with url pointing to NFS server root folder.
admin/admin(config)# repo FEB202014
admin/admin(config-Repository)# url nfs://10.85.6.37:/mywinshare
6.start the backup process via CLI or GUI.
