I have a mds9509 and when attempting to redirect the output of the "show tech-support" command to either ftp or a local file on the switch, I receive the error: "Write error: No space left on the device".
Bootflash and system resources all look fine:
MDS9509a# show tech-support > ftp: mds9509a_051407.txt
Write error: No space left on the device
PXDC-MDS9509a# dir bootflash:

The "Write error: No space left on the device" is due to the /volatile area being insufficient size to store the show tech output. We put it in /volatile before it is ftp'd off the MDS. As of 3.1(3) we increased the /volatile size to 40MB which should prevent the error.
It works from FM because FM does not rely on /volatile. FM does a CLI login behind the scene and screen scrapes the show tech output from the telnet data stream.
