Scripting Question

Scripted installation won't delete

03/15/2016 1496 views
I deleted the scripted installation we had in the k2000 appliance, but the disk space won't free itself. When I go to scripted installations, nothing shows up now, but he dashboard still says it's taking up 66GB of space on the hard drive. Is there another step I need to take for the removal to fully process?

I was thinking thinking captured images.  You said scripted install.  the scripted install itself takes no space what consumes that space is the source media that was uploaded to create the scripted install with.  go to library source media and clean up that area and then purge the files under settings.

  • also if you had a lot of application tasks that are no longer used delete them so the attached files will get marked to delete then purge those.

for 3.7 go to settings-appliance maintenance and click on "delete unused system image files"

  • I've done that a couple of times - no luck.

I noticed the same thing when I deleted some unused

scripted installs and images. Just didn't seem to free up

any space at the time.

But when I came in the next morning,  it was all fine and the

space was free.

I think it takes a little time for the deletion to take effect.

How is it now???

  • I realized that there was some source media that the scripted installation was referencing - as SMal.tmcc said, the installation itself doesn't take up any space. I deleted that and it helped.

    I had a call into Kace, and they gave me a link to this handy reference to help me determine how I wanted to go about disk cleanup: https://support.software.dell.com/k2000-systems-deployment-appliance/kb/123073
  • I'll be going through the driver feed next to purge anything we aren't using - that should free up a lot.
