OnCommand Unified Manager backup archive running out of disk space

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • OnCommand Unified Manager 7.3
  • OnCommand Unified Manager 7.2 


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


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.
