Issue

OnCommand Unified Manager over time will fill up the directory where the backup archives are stored.

An error message similar to the following can be seen in the ocum-error.log:

[root@motorhead_ocum]# cat ocum-error.log | grep backup

2018-02-14 06:20:47,855 ERROR [oncommand] [taskScheduler-4] [Backup|ScheduleBackup] [c.n.d.i.backup.BackupRestoreManager] Not enough space to carry out backup operation

2018-02-14 16:44:53,591 ERROR [oncommand] [taskScheduler-4] [Backup|ScheduleBackup] [c.n.d.impl.backup.BackupScheduleJob] Error while creating the backup

[root@motorhead_ocum]#

Another symptom, is that one of the incremental backups will not be compressed and will stay at the database-dumps-repo directory with its original size as an .sql file and not as a .7z archive.
This will not result in a specific error in the log files. Check the database-dumps-repo directory. 
When this happens, on the Unified Manager's GUI, this and all the newer backups are not shown.
