Freeing disk space

Freeing disk space
February 05, 2019 08:59AM
Hello! I'm still running 8.2.4.3 (haven't had time to upgrade, since we're
moving datacenter and changing to a new virtualization environment at the
same time).

Anyway, I'm very low on disk space, on the drive where my indexes are.
So I did an mminfo query for ssid/cloneid for savesets from 2013 that
still have a retention date in the future, and forced them to expire now.
(these are large savesets)

(I did a "nsrmm -e 02/05/2018 -o recycable -S <ssid>/<cloneid>")

I've done this in the past.

My question is, when is the actual disk space recovered? I tried doing an
"nsrim -X", but that hasn't freed up any space (yet), and I'm afraid I
will run out of space, and MEC won't help me because I'm on an old version
(my fault, not theirs, I totally understand that).

Anyway, what do I need to do to actual recover the disk space, now that
I've got a whole lot of expired savesets?

Thanks

Then check again

The -M option for nsrim says it shouldn't be run in manual mode ...

–M Master mode (not advised for manual operation). Advises nsrim that it
is
being run by nsrd(1m) or another NetWorker daemon, that it should log
messages
with timestamps, and that it should perform any other behavior expected
by nsrd.

I can try running "nsrim -X" again ...

It’s ok to use master mode especially in these circumstances

Hi,

Check for old client entries in ../nsr/index.
Clients deleted from the GUI still have an entry there but depends on how you decom old clients.

Regards,
John.
