ESM archive failure, low disk space

On the Archive Jobs page in Command Center the last several archives have failed saying "Not enough space available for archiving"

The storage group is only halfway full, and /opt/arcsight has several TB of space remaining.  In the Storage config pages for ESM Command Center this is what I see:

Default Storage Group Current 1308GB Max 2210GB

Allocated Size 7368GB
Max Size 7373GB

System Storage Current 1TB Max 1.4TB

df -h output on the system:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/rootvg-root 8.0G 2.8G 5.3G 35% /

tmpfs 26G 0 26G 0% /run/user/0
tmpfs 26G 0 26G 0% /run/user/1886

Am I missing something here?

There is a configuration option for the max disk space in the ''


Set/modify the following:

where X is the GB max allocation that you have in the default archive storage area. (Please restart services once chanegd)



Once you've modified this, you should be able to re-run the archive tasks from the CC


Let me know if you have any issues!


Many Thanks,
