This afternoon we had an issue being unable to log into Foundstone's website. I RDP'ed onto the appliance and found we had 0bytes free on D:. Luckily I was able to clear out the recycle bin that contained a few 200MB upgrade packages but that only left us with about 500MB of free space. How do I clean up my D:? We've had this appliance for over 3 years now, so for instance I know we have every Report since August 2007 still on the server and everything older than a year I can delete, but what's the best way to do that? What other places, if any, can I clean out?
Running MVM 8.0
The space will probably be take up by the reports, daily logs and the DB.
Hi Jeffrey, thanks for this. I set a better retention on the Logs, and confirmed my database tab is set to the default, but when you say "remove the reports you don't need" how exactly do I do this? We're talking about 2 years worth of reports, do I just go into the reports directory (D:\Foundstone\Reports) and delete everything older than a year or is there another way to do this properly?
There is another way,
Yes you can manually delete the reports. Once you have done that see where you are at space wise. I'm guessing this will take care of things but if it doesn't we we have to identify whats taking up so much space. If its the DB the KB article that rcg921 suggested might be the next step.
I deleted everything out of the Reports folder that was more than 13 months old which got me about 5GB of space back. This still means I'm only 5.5GB / 116GB free, so I saw rcg921's suggestion and sure enough my faultline_log.LDF file is 72.5GB so I'm going to try that KB next.
I tried to run the command but I got the Message "Cannot shrink log file 2 (Faultline_log) because all loigcal log files are in use" ?
EDIT-- Nevermind, I stopped all Components and then started the Database back up and then it let me run the script. 75GB free now. Thanks!Message was edited by: Glitch on 11/1/10 12:00:03 PM CDT
