If you login to your VCSA and find you are faced with the these images:

Vcsa-error.png

Vcsa-health.png

This normally means that the /storage/log folder has consumed all of it's disk space, you can confirm this by connecting to the VCSA via SSH and running:

df -h

You will then probably see the /storage/log folder is 100% use.

However this can be easily fixed by following the steps below.

  • In vCenter edit the settings of the VCSA
  • Increase the disk space of Disk 5
  • SSH To the VCSA and run:
vpxd_servicecfg storage lvm autogrow

This will now grow the /storage/log folder in to the space you have added to the disk
