Resolution

This assumes that LVM2 has sufficient space available for the large ISO files.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

Create an alternate iso directory on lvm2:          mkdir -p /lvm2/users/maintenance/iso/


Remove the normal iso directory and files:        rm -rf /var/opt/moi/users


Create a softlink to point the normal iso directory to the lvm2 directory:   ln -sfn /lvm2/users  /var/opt/moi/users

 

Place the iso in the normal iso directory and then reboot the appliance.

 

Clear out any dumps in lvm0 to save some space.
