nbackup: A file or directory cannot be restored. The system is out of disk space.) from NWSMTSWriteDataSet

What a problem, took me a couple of day’s to figure it out. And the problem is…….

Directory Space Restrictions!!!!!!! 😕

This isn’t a rare problem, i’t can be found on support.novell.com but not with this error. Thats why I post it here.

Apparently the directory has reached it quota. And during the migration you need more free space in the directory than there is left. So you get a error that there is no more free space.

Solution: Remove or expande the directory quota’s temporaly or use nss /noquotacheck in nnscon

    Hi, where can I get some information about what the /noquotacheck parameter do and what is the impact about using this in my volumes NSS?

    Tks.

      If you use this option on your nss volume. NSS will not check for quota’s. So everyone can exceed there quota until you reboot your server.
