Hi,

My RUT950 has run out of space on the flash disk

I have read through all the other posts on full flash, but other than "reset to factory defaults" there does not seem to be a decent solution.
Does anyone have any tips on this?

I only have 1 package installed (DDNS) and really need to install OSPF, but can't because of lack of space.

The device is remote so I would rather not factory reset it, though in a pinch I can if I have to.
Does anyone have any ideas as to where I should start looking to cleanup space?

Hello,

Check the following directory:

  • /overlay/upper/etc/profiles

It seems to be taking quite some space. There may be configuration profiles other than default, which could be removed. 

Best regards,

Hi,

What do you reckon is safe to delete?


root@Teltonika-RUT950:/overlay/upper/etc/profiles# ls -alh

The following can be removed:

  • default.md5
  • default.tar.gz
  • template.md5
  • template.tar.gz

For some reason they seem to be bigger than they should be. What firmware version is your device running on? 

by anonymous
RUT9_R_00.07.02.7

Deleted those profile files... rebooted.

That cleared it down to 77.92% and was enough free space to get OSPF Package installed.

Thanks for your help. Much appreciated....

Different router. Same issue.... any tips on this one?

These all seem to go the same way for me....
fresh build
configure
install DDNS and OSPF
all works well for a while
then flash fills up
services stop working
needs a factory reset
and back to the start
