zfs(1M) Shows Space Used On Root Filesystem But Unable To Find It With du(1) (Doc ID 1405883.1)

Last updated on JUNE 22, 2020

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 8/07 U4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


ZFS is showing that the root pool is almost full but du(1) is unable to find where all of the space is being used.


So the space is being taken up under the filesystem currently mounted as root, but running a du -shd /.[a-zA-Z]* /* does not find the space.
