Hi, I'm running into the same issue like jduehmig, I don't know why I should not have enough free space on bootdisk to update from DSM 5 to 6:

Code: Select all

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/root       2.4G  612M  1.7G  27% /
/tmp            122M  124K  122M   1% /tmp
/run            122M  1.5M  121M   2% /run
/dev/shm        122M     0  122M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/vg1000/lv  1.8T  1.8T  560K 100% /volume1
Any ideas?

From a user in the HA forums -- check your log file size!

"after some digging around, i noticed that the file /var/log/cluster/sysrec.log was 924mb and wasn't log-rotated since april 20th:"

Code: Select all
root@coruscant1:/var/log/cluster# ls -al
total 1039656
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 21956 Apr 20 23:35 busy_system_info.log

i zipped up the file, purged the log and retried the update. it went through smoothly.
So many Synology systems for so many years starting at DSM V1.x.

I seem to be having the same issues as many other users here:

My /dev/md0 is at 100% full

I have tried running "du -hd 1" under the "/" directory logged in as root and it lists about 10 directories and then seems to hang, the disk lights on the box seem to be going crazy.

Out of the 10 directories listed, none of them are big.

Anyone have any ideas?

Can anyone assist with this? I have same issue and not sure where to look as I tried multiple commands and no success.
Below is what shows on my ssh session.

admin@ds1512:~$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/md0 2.3G 2.3G 0 100% /
none 1.5G 4.0K 1.5G 1% /dev
/tmp 1.5G 448K 1.5G 1% /tmp
/run 1.5G 3.0M 1.5G 1% /run
/dev/shm 1.5G 4.0K 1.5G 1% /dev/shm
none 4.0K 0 4.0K 0% /sys/fs/cgr oup
/dev/vg2/volume_1 35T 14T 21T 40% /opt
/dev/sds1 1.7T 621G 1.1T 38% /volumeUSB4 /usbshare
/dev/sdr1 4.6T 3.6T 951G 80% /volumeUSB1 /usbshare
/dev/sdq1 4.6T 4.3T 294G 94% /volumeUSB6 /usbshare
admin@ds1512:~$

So I know my /dev is full but how can i search that directory to see what folder has the biggest size file?
I tried the below commands and not having any luck.
sudo find /dev -size +1500k
Nothing came back.

Gemni,

As you read in that thread, I deleted my 1.2 GB file called user-error_log from /var/log/httpd (via ssh terminal session as root). I did a shutdown and reboot. 1.2 GB became available.

Here are the commands I issued one at a time:

df -h
cd /var/log/httpd/
ls -lah
rm user-error_log (or whatever file is huge)

I hope this helps.

Some strange problems

Unread post by renzo.rucco » Mon Oct 17, 2016 8:16 am

Hello to all,
in my company we use a RS2211RP + for a few years, without any problems.
A few days ago, however, two problems have appeared strange:
For info the space available is 50% or about 11 Tera

1) We use a lot of file sharing with the outside with unauthenticated users on the system. For few days when I try to share a file, it appears to me for a second, the share window and then, immediately after, an error message "unknown database error", thus making it unusable this feature. What may have happened? How can I fix?

2) Another strange problem is the message that appears in the firmware upgrade page: "insufficient capacity to upgrade. The system partition requires at least 350 MB."
Remember that there are 11 tera available. How can I solve this other problem?

I thank in advance all those who will want to help me.
Best regards
Renzo Rucco

Multiple problems with my Synology

Unread post by cedric_charles » Fri Oct 21, 2016 2:52 pm

Hello,

I have multiple problems with my Synology.
  • When I want to update, I have a message that says that I have not enough space... But I do have enough space :p
  • I'm on Mac OS Sierra : I can connect to the synology through the finder sidebar, but AFP is not working anymore, and I really need it...
  • I'm a webdesign/webdeveloper and all my websites are doing backups on the Synology once a week. Since 3 days, all the backups failed, and I didn't do anything on the synology since a few months... The error message I got from my backup plugin on my websites is "ftp - Synology - Error: Not connected to FTP server. Call connect() or ssl_connect() first."
Thank you in advance for your help !

Cannot upgrade DSM from 5.2 to 6

Unread post by Tigern » Tue Nov 15, 2016 1:01 pm

Hi!

I have a problem with my DS413.
The admin before me created a iSCSI LUN that filles the whole /volume1 and now when I want to update DSM from 5.2 to 6.x I cannot complete the upgrade due to insufficient capacity space.
I can see in during the update (using df -h) that the update place files on /volume1 (but I cannot find where..) and the space run out and the update gets aborted.

Is there any way to change the TMP (or whatever they are called in Synology OS) paths used by the Synology update feature?
I have tried to upload the DSM patch via WinSCP and update via synoupgrade --patch but it also fail.

Anyone got the same problem?

Well there is the trick of the double reset which sets up the nas to reinstall the DSM without destroying your data.

However I'm just stuck in there since my NAS now fails on every uploading of any version of the DSM and won't boot either.

So if you have a backup have a look at this non-destructive re-installing of DSM.
If you don't have a back up better create one before diving in there :-(

Problem with DSM 6.0.2-8451-6 = "Insufficient capacity for update"

Unread post by dconway » Mon Dec 12, 2016 4:23 pm

I saw I had update 6 waiting for me of DSM 6.0.2 and tried to install but got this error:
Insufficient capacity for update. The system partition requires at least 400 MB.
I have one volume which is 50% full (over 10 terabytes available).

Anyone know what's going on?

I was trying to update the DSM on my DS210j that I purchased in 2010 (and had never done so since I bought it). The problem was when trying to upgrade the 2010 DSM to the newest version (which is DSM 5967 as of the date of this post), the system would give me error number 16 and say that there was insufficient space to do the update. I tried everything, then I stumbled on the solution:

I went to the Synology directory of previous DSM versions and started with DSM 1141, which I was able to successfully install.
I tried to install DSM 5967 again at this point, but it didn't let me, so I manually updated the system to the next version up, which was DSM 1334. This worked.
Then I continued on, updating to DSM 2198 (v4.0). At this point, the device's control panel automatically suggested updates until I finally got to the latest version, DSM 5967.

So that was the trick. Hope it works for anyone experiencing a similar problem when upgrading your ancient firmware.

Unable to Upgrade :=(

Unread post by cullen.tsering » Tue Jan 03, 2017 4:05 am

Hello,

I downloaded the latest .pat file: DSM_DS410j_5967.pat

And uploaded to upgrade DSM, and I am getting the following error:
Unknown error occurs (error no:16).
(Note: system volume is insufficient to extract upgrade patch, please backup all fiels and restore to factory default.)


It seems very scary to take that advise. How can I safely upgrade my DSM.

My BOX:

Model: DS410j
Number of Hard drives: two 2T western digital HD's
Total Physical Memory 128 MB
Current DSM version: DSM 2.3-1157
Upgrading to version: DSM 5.2
Used/Total: 657.6/1829.3 GB


Please Help!

For my Saturday morning present I was also welcomed with this message on my 1813+ "Insufficient capacity for update. The system partition required at least 400 MB". NAS was on DSM_6_1_5047_Update_1.
Emptied out logs, restarted and re-tried downloading / installing update.
This time I was able to update to DSM 6.1-15047 Update 2 successfully.
DS1813+ (8 x 3TB)

Same problem on my ds1815+. What do you mean by "emptied out logs". I just turned on archiving in the logs center apps. Will that do the trick?
