Pinned topic Failing installation in pre-check stage due to low disk space.

‏2013-05-10T10:24:27Z |

My host OS has over 600 GB of free space and as per log my guest OS is having 1.4 GB free space. BigInsights Installer started, but through use of a browser to access: http://X.X.X.X:8300/Install, installation is repeatedly failing with disk space issue.
.
I appreciate if any body can help me to solve this issue ?

At present I am running installation on RHEL 64 bit VM.

Do I need to increase the size of VM?

If so, then I am making note of few points: maximum virtual disk size is 50 GB with ~1 GB current size and 2.1 GB RAM.

Installation log:
INFO] @localhost.localdomain - Free space of /dev/sda1 is 1.4G
[ERROR] PriorChecker - Disk space check - failed on localhost.localdomain
[ERROR] PriorChecker - 255 -- com.ibm.xap.mgmt.DeployException: Free space - 1503238554(B) < biginsights.minimal.install.size + totalfree * 0.1 - 5519032975(B) : free disk space is less than minimal requriement

    The log indicates file system /dev/sda1 only 1.4G free space available, that is not enough to install Biginsights, could you please add more space to this file system ?

    trying to install 

     IBM InfoSphere BigInsights Basic Edition Version 2.1.0.0

    Installation log reads

    =================================

    ====================================================================

    i am not sure how to add more space to the file system, i have expanded the memory to 30 GB.

    wats the difference between /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1?

    I appreciate if any body can help me to solve this issue ?

    Thanks in advance
