R80.20 management server - snapshot export

hi - currently running R80.20 vm mgt svr

my /var/log directory is full

before following sk94671, i'm trying to create a backup and snapshot

cannot create backup or export snapshot file as /var/log full

is there any way I can export to a different directory to get snapshot file off this server?

thanks in advance

Your saying it's a VM, so use vmware to create the snapshot, but do not forget to shut it down before creating the snapshot.

Delete old log files from management server.

$FWDIR/log is a S-Link to this directory in /var/log/.

for R80.10:       /var/log/opt/CPsuite-R80.10/fw1/log/

for R80.20:       /var/log/opt/CPsuite-R80.20/fw1/log/

Here you can delete old logs from SmartLog after the date.

For example for the date 2019-01-20

# cd /var/log/opt/CPsuite-R80.10/fw1/log

# rm 2019-01-20*

You can also use "cd $FWDIR/log/"
