"No space left on device" error although disk utilization command shows free disk space Technical Level
Symptoms
  • Unable to create files on file system. This may result in operational anomalies (such as UserCheck errors, inability to install policy, etc.).

  • "cannot create regular file" and "No space left on device" errors are shown.
Cause

Unix-derived file systems may experience an issue creating new files, even if there appears to be free disk space. The issue can be caused by the exhaustion of available index nodes (inodes) on the affected partition.
