NSX Controller disk becomes full and disconnects


Article ID: 341196


Updated On:


VMware NSX Networking


One of the node disk that is part of an NSX Cluster gets full and gets into a disconnected state.
Note: For additional symptoms and log entries, see the Additional Information section.


VMware NSX for vSphere 6.0.x
VMware NSX for vSphere 6.2.x
VMware NSX for vSphere 6.1.x


This issue occurs because, by default, a group of logs (including mail.log) on the controller rotates every week. This configuration stores the logs on the controller disk for a week before the log rotates.


This issue is resolved in VMware NSX for vSphere 6.2.4, available at VMware Downloads.

To work around this issue if you do not want to upgrade, file a support request with VMware Support and quote this Knowledge Base article ID (2145826) in the problem description. For more information, see How to file a Support Request in My VMware (2006985).
