Netsight Database Backup Error

Userlevel 2

we have a Problem withe Netsight Database Backup. We got tge following error message, although we have enough space at Netsight Server:


"Insufficient disk space for Database Backup of 'netsightrpt' to file /usr/local/Enterasys_Networks/NetSight/backup/netsight_20150420.sql.rpt"

Does somebody have an idea?

Does it work if you disable "backup alarm and reporting database'" ?

The normal .SQL file is written. The error is at the .sql.rpt file and that file won´t be written in the Directory.

Could you run df -h?
It'll output something like this
df -h

then in /usr/local/Enterasys_Networks/NetSight/backup/ run ls -lah

It'll output something like this:

So as shown, our reporting database is 22 gigs, when copying the database, the netsight server needs generally wants about double the space in addition to an extra few gigs of spare space, the database is constantly being written to and no space available may result in a crash.
