Solaris Guest File System Full

Postby bobyera1 » 2. Apr 2017, 20:31

I have a Solaris 10 guest on a Windows 10 host. The Solaris guest was created as a dynamically allocated storage up to 16gb. After patching, the system now is around 8.4gb, but it is reporting file system full. How do I make it use the other 7+gb of space?

Do you see that "/export/home"? That's unused? That's where the rest of your virtual disk is.

The question is not necessarily a VirtualBox question, but rather a Solaris version. Unless you're interested in increasing those 16 GB to something bigger, in which case you should take a look at How to resize a Virtual Drive.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
