We facing an issue with remediation. The following error is logged when running bs_software on Windows managed server :

After a while they found out the problem has been caused by a lack of disk space on the managed node.
There should be a better message provided and eventually an additional check for disk space.
As an example of the message could be like:

"Please contact your Windows Administrator".

The current error  "Please contact your HP-SA Administrator" is misleading and confusing.  

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR:

There should be a better message provided and eventually an additional check for disk space.
As an example of the message could be like: "Please contact your Windows Administrator".
The current error  "Please contact your HP-SA Administrator" is misleading and confusing.
