Symptoms

/opt/oracle is just 2 GB partition and once it fills 80 %, customer will start receiving space alerts.

Customer has installed one more patch on this cell resulting in following dir :


[root@xdhfd2st08 oracle]# du -sh *
0       cell
548M    cell12.1.1.1.1_LINUX.X64_140712
1.1G    cell12.1.1.1.1_LINUX.X64_150216

because of this around 90 % of space is used. may be more then this.

Now they want to apply a new patch but cannot since they do not have more space in this partition.

Changes

 Customer has installed one more patch on this cell
