No space in local

B Hi

Proxmox reports having some 10G free but gives a "no space left on device" error when I attempt to upload an 5GB ISO.

Question 1: Why is it doing this?

Question 2: How can I:

A) Increase "local" storage size, and
B) upload anything to "local-lvm" as the upload button is greyed out

AFACS you have about 14.46 - 5.78 gb = 8.68 GB
if you upload it, it gets written in /var/tmp (part of / ) so you only have 3.68 free, and then we try to cp it to the destination (where there is not enough space)

you can simply upload it via ssh/scp for example to '/var/lib/vz/template/iso/'

Thanks. I can definitely SCP the file. I did not realize it needed to jump from /var/tmp if I used the upload function
