Managing disk space

You can view the Disk Usage pie chart on the appliance Dashboard to verify how much storage space is available on your appliance. You can migrate data on the appliance to an offboard-storage device, and migrate data stored on the virtual appliance or Remote Site Appliance (RSA) to an additional virtual disk to free up space. You can also delete unused images, boot environments, source media, and tasks.

Verify available disk space

Verify available disk space

For optimal performance, the appliance requires approximately 20 percent free disk space. You can verify the available disk space from the Disk Usage pie chart on the Dashboard.

The Disk Usage pie chart displays a view of the storage information, which is updated every 10 minutes and every 60 minutes when storage is offboard.
Mouse over any section in the Disk Usage pie chart to view the percentage of available disk space for a component.

Delete images not associated with devices

Delete images not associated with devices

You can delete system images that are not associated with a licensed device that has booted from the appliance, and images that have been replaced after a capture.

On the left navigation pane, click Settings to expand the section, then click Appliance Maintenance to display the Appliance Maintenance page.
NOTE: You can only update the appliance if your license is up to date. When your license expires, a message appears at the top of the page, instructing you to update your license. The License Maintenance Status field on this page indicates the state of your license. To update your license, obtain a new key from your KACE sales representative, and update it on the Registration and Licensing page. If one or more Remote Site Appliances (RSAs) are associated with this appliance, the new license key is automatically updated on those RSAs after a synchronization.
Under Utilities > Delete unused system image files, click Delete.

The items are permanently removed from the appliance, and the available disk space displays on the Dashboard.
