Step1: Have you try to take backup after delete old backup files?
Still facing same error. Go to next step
Step 2: Login to CLI and go to expert mode. Check how many backup file are there. As I see I have two backup file in cd/var/log/CPbackup/backups directory and with the help of command df-kh, my disk space is showing full in /var/log directory.
How it is possible even I have only two backup file?
“Some time my gateway not able to push gateway logs to the management server due to less space in management server. So it store all log files on itself in directory /var/log/opt/CPsuit- R77/fw1/log so we have to delete these files from there.”
Step3: Before going to delete all these log file from the directory, save all of them in your pc and then cut and paste in management server. This all can be done through Winscp so to login in winscp we have to create a user with shell /bin/bash and Admin role.
Step4: After deleting all these log file, now check the disk space in /var/log directory. It is now more then enough.
Step 5: Now try to take backup once again. I hope you are now able to take your backup successfully.
