Nexus bootflash: tmp files

Hi, I notice that after a code upgrade, there are some tmp files left in the bootflash.

Do you recommend to delete them manually? Why the system doesn't delete them before the upgrade is done.

  • Hi,

    These files are not in use and were created during the upgrade process. There are normally deleted and may have been left due to a lack of disk space.


    The normal error message in the log would be %SYSMGR-2-TMP_DIR_FULL.

    These files are only used as part of the upgrade process. They can be safely deleted after the upgrade.
