223 disk space issue

Im installing 223 and of course i dont have th 200mb free space available in the /usr/nr directory. Meanwhile my /usr/nr/var and/or /export dirs have PLENTY.....

So, Is there someway of changing the default location for the install directory for the temporary staging of files ?? Or will I be forced to start from scratch?

I tried copying the /usr/nr directory to /export/nr and created a symbolic link for /usr/nr --> export/nr but i still get the same error....<see below for specifics>

thanks in advance,


# pwd


# ls -la nr

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 10 Aug 22 13:52 nr -> /export/nr

#cd /tmp/CSIDD223-sol



Installation of CSIDD 2.2.3 - Start time Wed Aug 22 14:09:12 EDT 2001


Operating System is SunOS 5.6

Not enough space in /usr/nr ..

Talk to your System Administrator to provide space in /usr/nr directory for temporarily staging t

or installation.

About 200 Mb of free space is needed in /usr/nr. Currently available space is 40985.

Re: 223 disk space issue

It looks like you actually linked /usr/nr/nr to /export/nr instead of linking /usr/nr.

Have you already moved all of the /usr/nr directory to /export/nr?

If not then you will need to do that first.

Remove the nr link from the /usr/nr directory.

Once that is done then you can umount the /usr/nr partition and remove it from the /etc/vfstab file.

From now on your /usr/nr directory will be part of the export partition.

Remove the now empty nr directory from the /usr directory.

Then create the link for /usr/nr to the /export/nr directory.

So if you cd to /usr/nr you wind up in /export/nr.

So instead of your output looking like:

# pwd


# ls -la nr

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 10 Aug 22 13:52 nr -> /export/nr

It should look like:

# pwd


# ls -la nr

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 10 Aug 22 13:52 nr -> /export/nr
