ERROR: Insufficient space in file WORK

Hi all,

 

since I did a log() operation on negativ values my temp space seems to be lost, because I cannot perform simpliest operations any more. A reboot of the VM does not help.

 
ERROR: Insufficient space in file WORK.HRV.DATA.
ERROR: File WORK.HRV.DATA is damaged. I/O processing did not complete.
 
Is there a way to clear the temp space?
Or do I have to install a new VM?
 
Thanks in advance.
Frank

Ok. I found a way to solve it. You should be familiar with VirtualBox.

Boot the VM with a CentOS CD and choose 'Troubleshooting' and mount the SAS-disk temporary.

So you can delete the contents of the /tmp directory ... in my case more than 4GB.

Now it works again fine :-)

Reinstalling VM is probably the fastest solution.

 

Besides that, you can contact SAS support as sasanalyticsu@sas.com for help with this one.

Hi,

 

Could you elaborate how I can do that? I have very limited knowledge of virtual machines. Thanks a lot!

Hello,  what is your special qestion about?

If you are unfamiliar with VirtualBox or Linux you can destroy a lot :-(

So may be the best way is to download the image again ;-)
