In place upgrade disk space of 32 gb RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks,

    It is documented that In place upgrade requires 32 gb free space for installation.

    Is it the file-share that requires this space or the actual C: drive of each FE server?

    Will the installer run if i have lesser space on c: drive?

    Is there a workaround?

    If not what all files can i safely delete before proceeding?

    Thanks in advance,

    RB

    No ,file-share just requires space for drive of local server.

    Will the installer run if i have lesser space on c: drive?

    Yes ,but if you do not have enough space,I do not recommand you to install that.

    If not what all files can i safely delete before proceeding?

    Not recommended,but you can try use disk cleanup.

  • Try getting rid of obsolete Windows patches by using Patch Cleaner
    http://www.homedev.com.au/Free/PatchCleaner

    We used this tool to free up disk space on PCs before in-place upgrade from Windows 7 to 10. We'd often free up from 7 to 15 GB depending on how old the Windows install was.  Patch Cleaner also works on Servers.

    Do you have any Microsoft link that have the minimum requirements for an in place upgrade repair?

    Please post the links.

    This is a link that many use for in place upgrade repairs:

    Find a flash drive that you can format ( > or = 8 GB)

    Create a bootable Windows 10 iso:  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

    A typical Windows installation Home or Professional is approximately 23 to 25 GB.

    There are multiple things that can be done to increase the free space on a drive.

  • If you installed your DB on another drive, and your system drive is below 32GB, this should work :

    Here's what you need to do when you have you databases on an alternative drive and your OS drive doesn't have 32GB:

    1. Find the correct path to the CsData folder

    2. Run the CU installer utility (it will fail at server.msp)

    3. Open PowerShell as an admin on the front end you are trying to install the CU on, run the command Install-CsDatabase -LocalDatabases -DatabasePaths <Drive:\path\more_path\CsData> -Update

    4. Re-run the CU installer, server.msp should install now
