Error: "Not enough space on local drive" when Updating to IGEL OS 11.04 or Higher
You have tried to update a device to IGEL OS 11.04.100 or higher, but the update fails with the error message "Not enough space on local drive".
IGEL OS 11.04.100 or higher requires more than 2 GB storage; your device has less storage than required.
This article is valid for the following environment:
- IGEL OS 11.04 or higher
- UMS 6.05 or higher (recommended)
- Endpoint device that is supported by IGEL OS 11.04.100 or higher but has a storage size lesser than the storage size required by the full feature set
The recommended storage size for IGEL OS 11.04.100 or higher is 4 GB. However, you can update an endpoint device with lesser storage than required by a regular IGEL OS installation. This can be done by reducing the feature set. A modified INF file (
lxos-reduced.inf) in the update source defines a reduced feature set that makes the firmware fit into your endpoint device's storage.
As an alternative to the preconfigured INF file, you can customize the INF file yourself to define your own reduced feature set.
Reduced Feature Set Cannot Be Changed by Setup/UMS
When you have reduced the firmware as described below, you cannot reactivate features via the Setup resp. the UMS configuration dialog. To recover the complete feature set, you must copy
lxos.inf and then start the firmware update.
When you have downloaded a reduced firmware on a buddy update server by mistake, also the buddy server itself has the limited feature set. To recover the complete feature set on the buddy server, you must copy
lxos.inf in the update source and then update the buddy update server again.
Using the Preconfigured INF File
To find out which features are included in the reduced feature set, open the
readme[version].txt in your update source directory and search for "Reduced Firmware". The table shows the features, the storage size they require, and whether they are included in the reduced feature set.
lxos.inf file as follows:
- Go to the directory that contains the source files for the firmware update. If you use the WebDav capability of the UMS, this is
<UMS installation directory>\rmguiserver\webapps\ums_filetransfer\<firmware version>; example:
It is safe to delete
lxos.infbecause there is a backup file named
- Start the firmware update as usual.
Customizing the INF File
IGEL OS Release Notes, look up your version of IGEL OS, go to "Component Versions [your version]", and find the "Services" section.To get a list of all features and their storage requirement, go to
To customize the INF file:
- In the [INFO] section, add the following line:
- Delete the
[PART]section of every partition you want to exclude, but do this ONLY IF the section has both of the following entries:
lxos.infand start the firmware update as usual.
