Would you please take a look at it >for me when you get a chance? Many thanks in advance. I found that the log file for cron was consuming essentially the entire disk partition: df -k ... /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s1 413639 376450 0 100% /var ... <as 'root'> cd /var du -k . ... 296041 ./cron ... cd cron ls -alt total 592084 -rw------- 1 root root 302980053 Sep 19 14:52 log drwxr-xr-x 28 root sys 512 Sep 18 23:58 .. drwx------ 2 root sys 512 Jan 8 2003 . I copied the cron log file to the directory I created on your /data partition, /data/cron.log. I then cleared out the cron log file: <still as 'root'> cat /dev/null > /var/cron/log You now have space on /var, but it will slowly be eaten away as cron logging proceeds (it turns out that your /var/cron/log file had entries in it dating back to September 18, 2003). After you have determined that the copy of the cron log file that I created in /data/cron.log/log is not useful to you (it shouldn't be), you should delete it to clean up (need to be 'root' to look at the log file and delete it). Finally, it looks like you could _really_ use an update on your LDM and McIDAS installation. Please let me know if I can help...
