    You can check with the 'dir' command if there are large files that you could delete with the 'delete filename <filename>' command.

    However, this looks like some software issue as the flash should not fill up. Please open a TAC support case to get this investigated, cleaned up, and resolved.

    Thank you all,

    Following the Release Notes sections: Low Free Flash Memory.

    I have performed:

    tar crash

    tar clean crash

    tar clean logs

    tar clean traces

    With no changes.

    This step changed nothing:

    "Copy the flashbackup.tar.gz and configbackup.tar.gz files out of the controller. Then delete the

    flashbackup.tar.gz and configbackup.tar.gz files from the flash memory of the controller."
    Which I presume is on root


    show storage; still show 100%

    Have listed flash (dir flash), showing hundreds of files..

     

    Anyone ?

    TAC managed to release space,
    and issue is reported and to be fixed in next release (8.10.0.6)

    Known Issues in ArubaOS
    New Bug ID Description Reported Version AOS-238218
    The mongo database takes up a lot of flash space. This issue is
    observed in Mobility Conductors running ArubaOS 8.9.0.3 or later versions.
